Ford Motor Company Fund is the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company. Established in 1949, Ford Fund has invested $1.5 billion worldwide to advance the company’s 113-year legacy of corporate citizenship by helping build stronger communities with innovative, sustainable programs that make people’s lives better.
Education – Education is the cornerstone of future success. It is the key ingredient for better jobs, prosperity and an improved quality of life. Ford Fund invests more than $10 million a year to scale innovative educational solutions and empower people to envision and lead change.
Community Life – Communities are the places we call home. They are the neighborhoods, schools, parks and workplaces where we come together. We go beyond writing checks because financial support alone can be limiting and an inefficient use of resources. We help develop innovative, sustainable programs that have a lasting, positive impact on people and build stronger communities that benefit all of us.
Diversity – Diversity and inclusion make us stronger. Everyone brings unique experiences and viewpoints with them, improving our understanding of each other and the world we live in. We are stronger together as a company and as communities, where we share common dreams for our families.
Driving Safely – Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for young people in the U.S. and much of the world. Ford Fund is committed to driving safety — and driving safely through programs such as Ford Driving Skills for Life. As a leading global automaker, we believe it is our responsibility to not only provide the best safety equipment in our vehicles, but to also equip inexperienced drivers with advanced driving skills and straight talk about impaired driving and distractions — like texting — behind the wheel.
