Social Investing

 
  Contributing the quality of life in our operating communities:  In 2010, ADM Cares, our social-investment program, continued to support sustainable agriculture, promote farm safety and education, and provide better nutrition for children in the developing world though significant donations to organizations such as OIC International, the World Food Prize Foundation, the International Red Cross, Aliança da Terra, the National FFA Organization, Agriculture Future of America, the United Way, and Friends of the World Food Program.  
 
Increasing educational opportunities in the U.S. heartland:  In September, ADM donated $1.3 million to support schools and educational initiatives in 16 counties throughout Central Illinois, where increasingly tight budgets have posed significant challenges.
  
Responding to urgent human needs in times of crisis:  In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in January 2010, ADM and our employees donated 700 metric tons of rice – about 12 million servings – and provided nearly $650,000 to assist with relief efforts on the ground.   The company also gave $300,000 to the American Red Cross to support its local chapters, its International Response Fund and its Disaster Relief fund.   
 
Making our waterways cleaner:  ADM Cares is a major sponsor of Living Lands and Waters, an organization that promotes the health and vitality of the inland waterways on which our business relies. Since our collaboration began, ADM’s U.S. colleagues have devoted thousands of volunteer hours to removing debris from major rivers. In 2011, ADM will provide funding to support both the organization’s ongoing river cleanup work and to expand a floating classroom program, in which students and teachers will learn about environmental issues while traveling on a barge made from reclaimed and renewable materials.
