The UPS Foundation Loading...

The UPS Foundation leads the global corporate citizenship program for UPS, including philanthropy and volunteer activities. The Foundation focuses its work in four strategic areas that are aligned with UPS strategy and capabilities. These areas include: 

• Diversity 
• Community Safety 
• Environmental Sustainability 
• Volunteerism 

With regard to charitable donations, including cash and in-kind transportation movements, The UPS Foundation strategy is to allocate approximately 75 percent to global and national organizations and approximately 25 percent to local organizations. In actual practice, these percentages may vary in certain years. 

In addition, The UPS Foundation manages UPS’s United Way program and runs the United Way employee campaign each year. More information on United Way is provided in "UPS and United Way".

In this section of the Report, we first detail the Foundation’s activities in the four strategic areas. We then summarize key financial results for the Foundation and United Way, and provide extensive detail on the Foundation’s governance and grant-making processes.
