John Deere and its employees have a long history of supporting people in need, especially in communities where John Deere employees live and work. They have supported the American Red Cross relief efforts since 1917. Now, nearly a century later, the John Deere Foundation has expanded this commitment by its membership in the Red Cross Annual Giving Disaster Program (AGDP). The AGDP ensures that the Red Cross organizations have resources needed to effectively and efficiently respond to disasters across the USA and around the world. We are proud to be affiliated with the American Red Cross and the related international organizations.
