The BNSF Railway Foundation supports communities by funding a wide variety of arts and social service organizations and college scholarship programs. We also make a difference through our employees’ incredible volunteer spirit and their active contributions to many worthy community programs, from serving on city councils to building homes for Habitat for Humanity.
Since 2000, the BNSF Railway Foundation has contributed more than $240 million, to educational, cultural and other worthy programs in communities we serve. This includes donations made to match employee gifts. The foundation routinely donates to youth programs and community projects with significant local involvement. The Foundation, which is funded by BNSF, contributed more than $10 million to about 1,500 organizations in 2017.
