Giving back through our McAdams SHARES initiative

To us, giving back is much more than writing a check or an occasional volunteer effort. It’s a year-round commitment, which we formalized into a charitable outreach initiative – McAdams SHARES. This initiative’s sole purpose is to give back to those in need in the communities where we live and work.

The McAdams SHARES committee is made up of over 40 enthusiastic McAdams visionaries from throughout the organization who guide our philanthropic efforts for volunteerism and administer contributions of two percent of our annual earnings to local charitable organizations. As a company, we are determined to focus our efforts on housing, hunger, childhood education and environmental stewardship. We have high hopes to make a positive, meaningful impact for those in need. If you want to know how you and your organization can get involved, please contact us.
