Swift Charities is the formal charitable arm of Swift Transportation and is funded by voluntary payroll contributions from employees and corporate matching.
Swift Charities is committed to using these funds to provide Employee Assistance to Swift Transportation employees in hardship situations, to provide Scholarships for the children of Swift employees and to provide Community Grants to charitable organizations in the areas where we live and work.
Employee Assistance and Community Grant requests are reviewed by independent committees at the Phoenix Terminal. These Review Committees make granting decisions for these components based on objective criteria, appropriate information/documentation provided and the determination of need.
Swift employees can apply for the Swift Charities Scholarships for their children through the Arizona Community Foundation. These scholarships are reserved for children and dependents of Swift Transportation employees. The number of scholarships are limited in number by IRS guidelines and funds available.
