Swift Charities Gives Back

We're dedicated to paying it forward

Swift Charities is the formal charitable arm of Swift Transportation, and we are committed to helping our employees, their families, and communities when assistance is needed. 

Swift Charities is funded by voluntary payroll contributions from Swift employees and Owner/Operators, followed by a dollar-for-dollar match from Swift Transportation. 

These generous contributions are used exclusively for Employee Assistance Grants  to our Swift families in hardship situations, to provide Scholarships or our children and to provide Community Grants requested by our employees to charitable organizations in the areas where we live and work. 

All contributions made by employees and owners through payroll deduction are generously matched dollar for dollar by Swift Transportation.

HOW WE HELP MEMBERS OF THE SWIFT FAMILY AND THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

  • Scholarships for our Students
  • Community Grants

How To Contribute: Company Drivers & Owner Operators

Select Macro 21 on your Qualcom device and enter the amount you would like to have automatically withheld from your paycheck/settlement each week.  Your donation can be adjusted any time by returning to Macro 21 and the amount will be reported on your payroll information as a charitable contribution. Each year, your total payroll donations to Swift Charities will be reported on your W2/1099 as a charitable contribution.

How To Contribute: Office & Shop Employees

DRIVER SUPPORT PERSONNEL (OFFICE & SHOP EMPLOYEES):

Log in on the Swift Employee Portal (Transmission), scroll down and click “Update My Info” under “All About Me” on the right side.  Click on “Update Swift Charities Enrollment” under “Payroll Options”, “Accept” on the Disclaimer Page and adjust your contribution.  Keep in mind that Non-Drivers are paid bi-weekly so in order to make a $1 per week contribution, you would enter $2 when asked for an amount. This information is submitted electronically to the Payroll Department in Phoenix and will continue automatically until you make changes.  You can change or cancel your contribution at any time and your donations are reported as charitable contributions on each pay stub and on your annual W2.
