BNSF Railway Foundation

 

Welcome to the BNSF Railway Foundation, the Major Channel of Philanthropy for BNSF

Our Mission: The BNSF Railway Foundation will support and improve the general welfare and quality of life in communities served by BNSF


  • Improving our communities through volunteering
  • Engaging the community through special events
  • Developing youths through scholarships

The BNSF Railway Foundation is incorporated within the State of Texas and is housed at BNSF Railway's corporate headquarters in Fort Worth. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Foundation had been BNSF Railway's main vehicle for charitable giving since 1996 when the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroads merged to form the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, now known as the BNSF Railway.

The BNSF Railway Foundation has supported and helped improve quality of life for thousands of communities across the 28 states through which BNSF operates, and where BNSF employees live, work and volunteer. Indeed, as the corporation's assets have grown, the Foundation's giving has expanded to help more and more communities.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors composed of BNSF Railway executives, headed by its President. Please refer to the Contact Us tab for appropriate contact information.
