The UPS Foundation

Founded in 1951, The UPS Foundation's mission is to deliver pathways to empower resilient, just and safe communities.  Our philanthropic approach centers on four focus areas: Health & Humanitarian Relief, Equity and Economic Empowerment, Local engagement, and Planet protection.

At UPS, giving means more than writing a check. We combine UPSers' 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 skilled volunteers.

Great employers are great corporate citizens. We invite you to learn more about opportunities to work at UPS and the many ways we deliver what matters to communities around the globe.
