Company Information

The Annie E. Casey Foundation is one of the nation’s largest private philanthropies. More than 100 years ago, Annie E. Casey was a widow raising her four children near Seattle, Washington. To support his mother and siblings, the eldest son, Jim, left school at age 11 to work for a local delivery company. At age 19 Jim and a friend started a bike messenger service which expanded to become the world’s largest logistics company, United Parcel Service (UPS.) Despite his success, Jim never forgot the challenges of growing up poor and having to support a family with little education, nor did he forget the value of the encouragement from his mother. In 1948, Jim and his siblings established the Annie E. Casey Foundation, named after their mother, to help build a brighter future for kids like them.
