With the same excitement with which we release products, we provide support to the communities in which we live, work and play. Our community support remains independent from, but aligned with, our company goals and our One Ford plan. One of the outputs of One Ford is to build a better world, and so reaching out and providing assistance to our communities is an essential part of what we do.

Ford has been supporting community efforts since our founding more than 100 years ago. For us, it is not just about donating money. It’s also about building partnerships and working with others to address the difficult challenges so many people are facing. Our community activities are guided by the same sustainability and business priorities that also guide our business, including water, human rights and driving safety. We also focus on helping communities meet basic needs (such as food and shelter), supporting development programs, aiding with emergency and disaster response, and assisting in improving educational opportunities. We believe, as Henry Ford did when he founded Ford Motor Company, that our company is only as strong as the communities where our employees and customers live and work.

This section describes our approach to community engagement and investing in the communities in which we operate.
