Fluor Cares®, Fluor’s formal employee volunteer program, is the heart of the company’s community involvement efforts. Started in 1976 by J. Robert Fluor, the program engages and empowers employees to make a difference in their communities, magnifying and extending Fluor’s philanthropic impact. Last year, employees volunteered approximately 44,000 hours to help enrich the lives of those in their communities through Fluor’s focus areas of education, social services, community and economic development, and the environment.
Year after year, Fluor employees give their time, money, energy and support to enrich the lives of those in their community in need of a little extra help, support and encouragement. Global companywide volunteer initiatives include:
A total of 800 volunteers from 44 offices and project sites participated in Building Futures, donating more than $180,000 to provide school supplies and other necessities to approximately 36,000 children. Over the past 15 years, the Building Futures program has helped nearly 149,000 children in 18 countries around the globe, giving students the basic tools they need to help enrich their academic experience.
For more than 50 years, Fluor has supported DiscoverE, one of the nation’s largest professional outreach organizations, visiting dozens of schools, reaching more than 9,000 students and providing more than 14,000 hours of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) training and enrichment.
