*Union Pacific will make every effort to expedite funding for approved COVID-19 Relief Grant applications.
Union Pacific’s Community Ties Giving Program, through Union Pacific Railroad, Union Pacific Corporation and Union Pacific Foundation, will consider providing charitable support to non-religious organizations that do not discriminate based on a person's race, color, sex, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, past or present military service, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, genetic information, pregnancy, political affiliation, marital or familial status, or any other status protected by law ("protected status").
Notwithstanding the foregoing, religious organizations such as churches, mosques, and synagogues are eligible for funding if they have established a separate 501(c)(3) organization to operate the funded program AND the outreach program is offered to the general population regardless of religious affiliation and does not otherwise discriminate against individuals based upon their protected status. Organizations must be willing and able, if requested, to attest that they prohibit discrimination on these grounds in order to receive charitable support.
