Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame

The Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame documents the living history of corporate philanthropy and social responsibility.  

Established in 2019, the Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame identifies and commemorates companies and their leaders, employees, and cross-sector partners that have made extraordinary contributions to the betterment of society and brought about a new era where purpose is the foundation for progress. 

The U.S. Chamber Foundation has inducted nine companies into the Hall of Fame for their vision, authenticity, and commitment to empowering individuals and building resilient communities: 

2021 Inductee

Abbott for advancing health equity, broadening access to affordable care, and driving social innovations that lead to more resilient, healthier communities. 

2020 Inductees

Citi Foundation for promoting economic progress and improving the lives of people in low-income communities around the world.  

FedEx for leveraging its capabilities, expertise, and strategic partnerships with relief organizations to provide mission-critical needs in times of disaster and help communities heal, learn and thrive.

Cisco for leveraging the power of technology and expertise to accelerate global problem solving to benefit people, society, and the planet.

UPS for helping build safer, more resilient and inclusive communities around the world through diversity and inclusion, environmental sustainability, community safety, and volunteerism.

Over the last two decades, we have seen the boundaries between sectors converge, society’s demand for corporate purpose grow, and complex issues—from sustainability and economic empowerment, to diversity, equity and inclusion—requiring shared approaches to create lasting social impact. 

The Citizens Awards serve as a testament to this transformation and a powerful reminder that business continues to lead the way in helping people build better lives.
