The Ford Fund

We work with our partners to find innovative solutions to community concerns using a coordinated, strategic approach.


Since we began our operations in 1949, we have invested nearly $1.5 billion in civic organizations around the world to help drive a brighter future. We focus our efforts on three key areas:

Community Life

Community Life programs range from hunger relief to health care to support of cultural activities.  Many of these programs are done in partnership with local Ford dealers using an innovative approach we call Operation Better World.

We also invest about one third of our funds in support of education, including scholarships that help deserving students attain higher education and programs that help schools offer students new approaches to learning.

Our international, award-winning Ford Driving Skills for Life program is the cornerstone of our safety efforts.
