Some larger companies and businesses in your local area may have foundations set up to award to projects that directly enhance your community. One example of this is the Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). They have a grant program called the Cares program which supports safe, responsible, and environmentally sound agricultural practices in critical growing regions in North America, South America, West Africa, and Southeast Asia. The program provides grant support in the following focus areas: agronomically and environmentally sound agricultural development, including environmental stewardship; farm safety; and improved health, incomes, and working conditions for farmers and their families. Preference is given to groups in ADM communities that can demonstrate clear, measurable results toward stated objectives and a solid track record of success. Online applications may be submitted at any time. Visit their website to learn more about the program.
