Global Caring Month

Each September, the Ford Volunteer Corps rallies employees to design their own volunteer projects as part of our annual month-long community service initiative, Global Caring Month.

Employees choose an organization or issue they care about most in their communities and propose a unique volunteer project in partnership with a local nonprofit – from building homes or renovating schools, to cleaning up parks, installing clean water systems, distributing fresh food and more.

Ford Fund provides grants to the nonprofits to buy tools and supplies necessary to complete the project.

In 2022, more than $895,000 USD in grant funding was provided to 126 employee-nominated nonprofits in 30 countries.
