Our new strategy for FedEx Cares

For years, FedEx Cares has been giving through volunteer and monetary investments for our local communities. But we began to ask ourselves, “How can we take what we’re good at and apply it to solving some of the world’s problems in a thoughtful way?”

FedEx is investing $200 million in over 200 global communities by 2020 to create opportunities and deliver solutions for people around the world.
