Welcome to FedEx Cares

FedEx Cares is our global community engagement program and one way that we live out our purpose of connecting people and possibilities. Our goal is to help make the world a better place through in-kind shipping, volunteering our time and expertise, and charitable giving.

In times of need, our FedEx Cares team supports nonprofits with mission-critical demands. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have provided delivery of personal protective equipment and critical supplies to organizations around the world.

Nonprofit Funding

FedEx is committed to supporting the communities we serve by strategically investing our time, resources, and network. We accept funding proposals by invitation only from U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and Canadian-based organizations with charitable Business Number registration, and we are unable to respond to individual requests for funding. Priority is assigned to requests that fall within our three core focus areas: Delivering for Good, Sustainable Logistics, and Global Entrepreneurship.

If your organization or project meets the strategic criteria, we will send an invitation to apply during one of our grant cycles. Current grantees can refer to the grant cycle FAQs for more information and reporting expectations.
