Shortly after Henry Ford began his enterprise in 1903, he said, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” He was referring to an obligation he felt companies had to give back to their communities. That is precisely the goal of Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services - to support initiatives and institutions that enhance and improve opportunities for those who live in the communities where Ford Motor Company operates.

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.

Get a glimpse of some of the ways Ford gives back to the Military and its communities:
