Donadores & Socios
EMBARQ’s work would not be possible without the generous support of its many donors around the world. We would like to particularly acknowledge our founding funder, Shell Foundation, who helped establish EMBARQ in 2002 with an initial $7.5 million investment. Twelve years later, EMBARQ has leveraged that investment to attract other funders that helped us grow centers for sustainable transport in five countries around the world. EMBARQ is especially grateful for our global strategic funders who contribute multi-year, multi-million dollar support: Bloomberg Philanthropies, Caterpillar Foundation, FedEx Corp and Shell Foundation.
