FORT International's Social Responsibility is the backbone of its success and its King Solomon Award Scholarship (KSA) which started in 2009 is an integral part of how we help the communities we serve.

Our private scholarship is made possible by the unwavering support of our loyal customers like yourself, as it is fully funded by the sales generated through your support! Thanks to you, students like Gabrielle Frost, win thousands of dollars every year.

FORT is a strong supporter of Quality Education which is directly related to part of our vision and one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) adopted by the United Nations in 2015.

In an effort to grow our impact and reach, at the beginning of 2020 we decided to donate $1 USD for every case of trash liners sold.

To continue adding to our scholarship fund, as of July 1st 2023, FORT will allocate $0.25 for every Welcome Kit sold in an effort to meet our goal of $1MM in scholarship funds by 2032.

In addition, we are not just assisting high school seniors, but also allocating a portion of the funds to freshman at HBCU schools to help minimize "stop out" rates due to financial hardship, as this is just one of the many educational social issues we are facing today.

Your business makes a difference and the FORT team is extremely proud of the impact we make in the communities we serve.

Philanthropy, and community support have been an active part of our business model, and as the world evolves, we continue to expand our impact to different areas all while staying true to our vision of inspiring as many individuals achieve their own goals as individuals, academically or professionally.

We actively seek to support different organizations who not only share our vision, but also are passionate about our global commitment.

While the SDG Goals were only developed in 2015, FORT was always clear on one thing, giving back and helping those in need! Since the inception of the SDG's in 2015, we have honed in on community projects which best match our reach.

Once these goals and targets were established by The United Nations, FORT decided to create a clear roadmap to understand how we can further impact community projects which best match our reach, all while aligning with FORT's Purpose, Mission and Vision.

Joining forces with our neighbors is an important step in accomplishing this because together, anything is possible!

We welcome you to join our journey, where we can all learn, grow and give back to those in need.

Here are some of the organizations we support and hope that like us, you join them and become part of the change.

The SDG's are "17 Sustainable Development Goals, which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests."
