“These are not just the communities where we happen to have facilities; these are the places we live and work,” said Matt Jansen, ADM corporate senior vice president and president, Oilseeds. “We depend on the economic health and vitality of these communities, not just for our business, but for the wellbeing of our colleagues, their families and neighbors. With these donations, our colleagues around the globe are giving something back.”
The donations were coordinated through ADM Cares, the company’s social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. ADM Cares comprises three distinct focus areas: supporting the responsible development of agriculture, improving the quality of life in ADM communities and fostering employee giving and volunteer activities.
