FedEx supports the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program, working in 18 U.S. cities to fund community-based conservation projects. With FedEx team member engagement, the projects restore watersheds, improve air quality, encourage environmental stewardship, and foster community environmental outreach and support.


FedEx and NFWF began working together in 2009 to fund community-based conservation projects in 12 U.S. cities through the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program. The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program seeks to develop nationwide community stewardship of local natural resources, preserving these resources for future generations and enhancing habitat for local wildlife. To date, the projects supported by FedEx have engaged more than 4,500 FedEx volunteers along with 500,000 community members to restore 4,200 acres of habitat and plant 350,000 trees.

This conservation partnership supports NFWF’s efforts to address water quality issues in priority watersheds, such as erosion due to unstable streambanks, pollution from stormwater runoff, and degraded shorelines caused by development.
