Giving & Volunteerism

Giving and Volunteering to Improve Our Communities

Fluor’s giving programs focus support on organizations around the world where we have a presence. In 1976, J. Robert Fluor started the formal employee volunteer program that is the heart of the company’s community involvement efforts. Now known as Fluor Cares®, the program engages and empowers employees to make a difference in their communities, magnifying and extending our philanthropic impact through employee giving and volunteerism.

In 2023, employees donated more than 33,700 hours and contributed US$4 million to help enrich the lives of those in their communities through our focus areas of education, economic development, the environment and public health and critical human needs.

Charity Golf Tournaments

For decades, Fluor employees have hosted golf tournaments to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations. In total, programs such as Golf for Greenville and Golf for Greater Houston have donated almost US$11 million through employee-driven volunteer efforts.

Each tournament operates independently and works to provide substantial funding, primarily for capital projects of deserving charities fully aligned with our giving priorities. The programs involve scores of employees who donate thousands of hours to organize and host the tournaments.

Global Volunteer Initiatives

Year after year, our employees give their time, money, energy and expertise to enrich the lives of those in their community in need of a little extra help, support and encouragement.

Building Futures

Building Futures is our global outreach program dedicated to providing resources such as backpacks and school supplies to students in need as they start the new school year.

Offices and project sites on five continents participated in the Building Futures backpack program. In 2023, volunteers from 25 Fluor locations in 12 countries provided backpacks to nearly 5,000 students.

Over the past 23 years, the Building Futures program has helped more than 218,000 children around the globe, donating US$2.3 million and more than 40,000 volunteer hours to give students the basic tools they need to help enrich their academic experience.

Engineers Week

For more than 50 years, Fluor and our employees have supported National Engineers Week, one of the largest celebrations of the engineering profession. In 2023, employee volunteers in nine countries donated more than 1,340 hours to engage more than 7,200 students at 23 schools and community centers with hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) training, enrichment and awareness.
