In the 2019–20 fiscal year, ADP served as fiscal sponsor for two groups whose work aligns with ADP's mission of protecting animals and promoting plant-based diet change.

Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of non-profits offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the sponsoring organization's mission. Fiscal sponsorship arrangements benefit organizations that are not tax-exempt by providing a flow-through pathway for revenue that the organization may not otherwise be in a position to receive.
