$7M Headed To Groups Supporting Diversity

 ATLANTA - UPS has today announced grants totaling $7 million to more than 80 non-profit organizations whose mission is to support diverse populations. These grants will fund programs that develop leadership skills, promote education and encourage inclusion of all individuals.

The UPS Foundation, the company's philanthropic arm, has a half-century history of supporting diversity organizations, especially those focused on the education and development of women and minorities.

Organizations receiving grants include: 

  • The Human Rights Campaign to support the HRC Foundation's Workplace Project, a program that encourages fair workplace inclusion practices through benefits, diversity programs and recruitment practices.
  • The National Council of La Raza to support the continued expansion of its regional Affiliate Network, a diverse network of community-based organizations that support the needs of Hispanic Americans.
  • The National Urban League to support infrastructure and the NUL's Entrepreneurship Centers. This grant further strengthens the partnership between the National Urban League and UPS, which resulted in the hiring of the first African-American UPS driver in 1957 and the development and support of future business leaders through the Black Executive Exchange Program.
  • The NAACP in support of its Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) program, a year-long achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students. The NAACP also will use the grant to support their National Conference and the Spingarn Dinner.
  • The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to support web site development and implementation of the 'Knowledge Library,' which will help educators nationwide meet the academic needs of children who are deaf or hard of hearing as well as provide resources for their families.
  • The Paralyzed Veterans of America to support its Vocational Rehab program and the 2011 National Veterans Wheelchair Games.
  • The National Federation of the Blind to support educational programs for blind youth in science and Braille literacy.
  • Girls, Inc. to support the Leadership and Community Action Program.
