Together, We are Stronger.

The Caterpillar Foundation builds resilient communities that thrive in tomorrow’s world.

Caterpillar Foundation


Since its founding in 1952, the Caterpillar Foundation has contributed to helping improve the lives of people around the world. As a company, Caterpillar works alongside our dealers and our customers to build the societal infrastructure needed to make the world run. As a Foundation, we focus on the complementary human, natural and basic services infrastructure needed for individuals to thrive and communities to be resilient.


The Caterpillar Foundation is transforming communities to be stronger, more resilient, and more sustainable.


We build thriving communities by investing in the skills people need to join the modern workforce, and the natural and vital infrastructure they rely upon.
