The UPS Foundation is celebrating 70 years of giving, and we’re marking the occasion by reframing its vision to address today’s most persistent problems. With a bold goal to positively impact one billion lives by 2040, equity is now at the center of The Foundation’s four focus areas:
- Health & Humanitarian Relief
- Equity & Economic Empowerment
- Local Community Engagement
- Planet Protection
UPS is deeply committed to community involvement – especially in times of crisis – delivering hope and helping people in need. Around the world, our employees and The UPS Foundation gave $122.3 million last year. And most recently in the U.S., UPSers donated more than $44 million to the United Way. In the midst of a global pandemic, UPSers remain committed to delivering what matters.
“Even in these challenging times, UPS employees around the world are delivering what matters for our communities by donating their time, talent and treasure to generate social impact,” said Nikki Clifton, president, social impact and The UPS Foundation. “A heartfelt thank you goes out to every UPSer. Your commitment to supporting our neighbors and lifting communities is meaningful and inspiring.”
Through The UPS Foundation, UPS furthers the commitment to community service started by its founder, Jim Casey.
