May is recognized in the U.S. as Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, with different parts of the world celebrating Asian heritage throughout the year.

Why it matters:You belong at UPS” is our rallying cry, but it extends beyond our company – from our frontline drivers to our customers and suppliers around the world. And it represents how we engage with our communities as we build a more inclusive workplace and world.

Showing up for AAPI: UPS and The UPS Foundation have an ongoing commitment to support and uplift the AAPI community through local, national, and global organizations and programs.

  • The UPS Foundation committed more than $2.2 million in grants and sponsorships to advance programs supporting AAPI issues in 2021.
  • Our latest Proudly Unstoppable campaign will include a $150,000 grant to empower AAPI-owned small businesses.
  • Our Women Exporters Program has equipped women-owned-and -led small businesses across the Asia-Pacific region with the skills to grow and develop their companies’ export capabilities.
  • For over two decades, The UPS Foundation has funded higher education scholarships for first-generation Asian American and Pacific Islander high school students.
  • Our Asian Business Resource Group has helped build a community, educate allies and drive equality across our organization.

What you can do: Get involved in one of The UPS Foundation’s many partner organizations that advance opportunities for people of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage.
