 Community Support Overview

Community Support / Partnership


Since 1953, the FCA Foundation, the charitable arm of FCA US LLC, has invested more $500 million in charitable organizations and initiatives that help empower people, and build strong, viable communities. The FCA Foundation invests in programs that generate meaningful and measurable societal impacts in the following areas: 

  • Education – programs that inspire young minds, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM);
  • Military – programs that support financial and basic needs of military service members, veterans and their families;
  • Multicultural/Diversity – programs that promote inclusion and opportunity for diverse populations; and
  • Youth Development – programs that help young people develop the skills and leadership qualities to succeed in school, at work, and in life.

Additionally, FCA US seeks opportunities to support communities through its Motor Citizens® volunteer program. This innovative program enables FCA US salaried employees to use 18 hours of paid time each year to be an Engine for Change by investing their time and talents in community service projects.


Be an Engine for Change



"Constructing a better world must go hand in hand with achieving business objectives. A better world, not just for today, but for those who will follow"
Sergio Marchionne 
Chief Executive Officer
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.


In support of this mission, the Company's Motor Citizens volunteer program provides salaried employees in North America with 18 hours of paid time off each year to make a difference in the world through volunteerism.

As a result, numerous schools, parks and community centers have been beautified by the FCA US Motor Citizens program. Employees help support children’s reading programs, career fairs and the Special Olympics. Also, they help spread cheer during the holiday season by organizing food and toy drives.

Additionally, the Motor Citizens Grants program, funded by the FCA Foundation, provides eligible charities with $500 grants to supplement volunteer hours performed by 10 or more FCA US employees, subject to program guidelines.
