This question already has an answer here:

I'm writing a very brief description for a job duty. Is it grammatically correct to use two possessive nouns in a sentence (e.g., Administration's and company's)?

Full sentence is... They support, strategize, and promote  the Administration's and company's programs, initiatives, and campaigns.

  • Wasn't sure if the correct use was: Administration's and company's...OR...Administration and company's where the apostrophe should be on both nouns or the 2nd noun – Shon Nov 25 '17 at 14:10

According to Cambridge Dictionary,

We can use two possessive ’s constructions in the same noun phrase:

We went to Jake’s father’s funeral.

When two nouns possess the same entity, add the apostrophe only to the second one:

Jason and Kate's children

But when two nouns possess different entities, you need to add an apostrophe to both:

Jason's and Jimmy's children
