Fluor Adds Historically Black Colleges to University Program

Fluor has extended its strategic university partnerships by adding three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to its global program. Fluor and the Fluor Foundation will provide up to $1 million, including matching donations over three years, to North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, Prairie View A&M University in Texas and Tuskegee University in Alabama.

These new partners join more than 30 existing colleges and universities around the globe as part of the Fluor Global University Sponsorship program. Through this initiative, Fluor sponsors annual grants to member institutions focusing on engineering, construction and business programs. The primary objective is to maintain strong relationships between Fluor and university faculty to advance applied research in the field, and develop graduates well-suited for the engineering, procurement and construction industry.

New Fluor Cares Platform Empowers Employee Giving and Volunteering

Fluor has launched a new global platform to further empower employee giving and volunteering. The Fluor Cares program gives employees the tools needed to help build a better world by honoring the company’s long history of giving back to the communities where we live and work.

No other company in our industry is capable of uniting for the greater good like Fluor. Since 1952, Fluor and the Fluor Foundation have contributed more than $210 million to a variety of charitable causes across the globe. With the launch of this platform, we are empowered to do more to help build a just, equitable, diverse and sustainable world for generations to come.

Employees in 13 countries can access the new Fluor Cares site from a computer or mobile device. The new platform offers year-round access and an employee match for eligible donations. Employees can give to causes anywhere in the world, regardless of their location. Employees can also organize team volunteer projects or fund-raising efforts. They can even use their own funds to match contributions of their peers (Peer Matching) for causes they champion.
