Read Story

FedEx is dedicated to transforming lives and economies around the world and in the communities where we live and operate. Our community investment strategy is built on collaborating with trusted NGOs and non-profit organizations to make meaningful and lasting impacts that align with our corporate priorities.

FedEx is committed to investing $200 million in more than 200 communities by 2020.

FedEx invests in programs that: foster entrepreneurship and create employment pathways for underserved populations; enhance sustainable transportation solutions and make our roads safer; and provide relief aid and residency measures to communities that need them most. Local volunteers supplement and enrich these community investments. Last year, almost 16,000 FedEx team members took part in FedEx Cares week alone.
