Fluor Employees Make a Difference Volunteering in Their Communities.

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 Fluor’s philanthropic impact through employee giving and volunteerism. In 2021, employees donated nearly 12,000 hours and contributed more than $3.8 million, including the company match, to help enrich the lives of those in their communities through Fluor's focus areas of education, public health and critical human needs, 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 volunteer initiatives include:

Building Futures

Building Futures is Fluor's global educational outreach program dedicated to providing resources like backpacks and school supplies to students in need as they start the new school year. Fluor offices and project sites participated in the Building Futures backpack program in 2021 with employees donating nearly $120,000 to provide school supplies and other necessities to nearly 5,000 children in nine countries. In 2021, we focused on sourcing recycled and recyclable materials for the program.

Over the past 20 years, the Building Futures program has helped more than 204,000 children around the globe, giving 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 nation’s largest celebrations of the engineering profession. In 2021, employee volunteers engaged 33 schools and charitable organizations with virtual and in-person options due to the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The effort reached nearly 2,800 students and provided more than 5,000 hours of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) training, enrichment and awareness.

Meals on Wheels

Throughout the year, Fluor employees volunteer to deliver meals for Meals on Wheels in Greenville, South Carolina. Fluor is the largest corporate partner for meal deliveries for Meals on Wheels in Greenville County, with more than 100 employee volunteers delivering meals to more than 350 homebound individuals following established safe distancing protocols.
