FedEx Community Relations and Corporate Sponsorships
FedEx in the Community
At FedEx, we recognize that our impact is greater than the services we provide. We are committed to being a great place to work, a thoughtful steward of the environment and a caring citizen in the communities where we live and work. We are passionate about sustainably connecting people and places and improving the quality of life around the world.
The FedEx community relations mission is to actively support the communities we serve through strategic investment of our people, resources and network.
FedEx Express Canada makes philanthropic investments within three core focus areas:
- Delivering for Good
- Road Safety
- Employee Engagement

FedEx Cares Employee Community Fund
FedEx also supports strategic community investments in areas such as education and health and human services. In addition to our corporate charitable initiatives, we donate $50,000 a year to registered Canadian charities selected by our employees through our FedEx Cares Employee Community Fund.
Charities we support across Canada
Disasters dramatically alter lives and destroy communities, and time is of the essence when it comes to providing help. Our networks allow us to quickly deploy our resources and logistics expertise to aid stricken areas.
Operations teams, pilots, drivers, and countless FedEx team members work tirelessly to deliver relief supplies, including medicine and food, to communities in need. We also provide in-kind shipping and financial support to disaster relief organizations. To prepare for and respond to emergencies, we set aside at least approximately 4 million pounds of disaster-related charitable shipping capacity each year. We work with a number of relief organizations to coordinate our efforts, including the American Red Cross, Direct Relief, InterAction, and The Salvation Army.
Of course, delivering supplies is only one piece of how we help communities affected by disaster. We also use our resources and expertise to support preparedness initiatives and long-term recovery efforts.
