The UPS Foundation’s mission and purpose

Leading UPS’s global citizenship efforts and philanthropy since 1951.
Mission and Purpose Mission and Purpose Mission and Purpose

The UPS Foundation’s philanthropic approach centers on four focus areas: health & humanitarian relief, equity and economic empowerment, local engagement and planet protection.

To UPS, giving means more than writing a check. It means combining employees' skills, passion and time with the company’s logistics expertise, transportation assets, and charitable donations* to make a measurable difference in society. The UPS Foundation invests in our global communities with cash grants, in-kind support and passionate volunteers.

As our communities continue to grow and evolve, so does The UPS Foundation's philanthropic approach, always focusing on four areas representing the purpose of our mission and reflect UPS's values.
