  • ADP is an organization that first comprised of just volunteers and project teams. We partner to expand the network and advance our mission by working with individuals across various companies (investing and non-investing backgrounds), universities and a network of local and national nonprofits. Size is key factor in the value and effectiveness of a network. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
