About the C.H. Robinson Foundation

Over the last century, C.H. Robinson has established a rich tradition of giving back to our employees and our communities. In 2005, C.H. Robinson created the C.H. Robinson Foundation to provide philanthropic support to our communities well into the future, through all types of economic and business climates. 

Foundation Giving Priorities

The Foundation is committed to ensuring that our communities continue to be great places to live and work, and through our employee match programs and grants, we provide support to hundreds of organizations each year.

Our giving priorities support organizations who can offer employee engagement opportunities and focus on programs which:

  • Expand educational success for at-risk youth
  • Prevent hunger and provide food assistance
  • Expand and improve access to affordable housing
  • Support immediate living needs for people in crisis
  • Focus on areas of Health — research, prevention, and treatment

The Foundation supports organizations that are located within the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, and greater Minnesota. Visit our Foundation Giving page for information on how to submit a letter of inquiry.

In addition, the Foundation is proud to support the charitable interests of its employees through charitable match programs.

Local & Regional Giving

C.H. Robinson has offices around the world, and each office participates in its own charitable giving programs locally or regionally. If you are seeking funding for an organization outside of Minnesota, please contact us at CommunityRelations@chrobinson.com for more information.
