Potential Societal Impact: ROI Per Child

Economic Impact

  • The average earnings over 40 years is $2.4M for a person with a bachelor’s degree—more than twice the average for someone with a high school diploma, according to the U.S. Census Bureau
  • In contrast, the average lifetime societal burden is $2.1M for each high school dropout who enters a life of crime and drugs
  • For every child, this represents an ROI of $4.5M to $107,100 invested over 17 year period
  • The compounding effect of generations to come yields even higher returns

Customer First, People Led, Innovation Driven.

“Everyone has the power to make an impact and by serving others we serve the collective good”. UPS believes the best way to give back is to draw upon their collective strengths, linking philanthropic dollars with logistics expertise, transportation assets, and their people to create a shared value for our communities and people around the world.

To UPS, giving means more than writing a check. It means combining employees’ skills, passion and time with charitable donations to make a measurable difference in society. They are staying on the path to help our kids have abundant life as they serve as our corporate sponsor for Bike Across Chicago through charitable cash donations and passionate employee volunteering. As they gear up to celebrate their global volunteer month, we are forever grateful for all UPS has done to deliver joy to our kids and communities.

By The Hand Club For Kids thanks UPS for all the organization has done to help our kids succeed.
