Uber + Arian Foster: Supporting Underserved Communities

Football season is in full swing, and we’re celebrating touchdowns on and off the field. We are suiting up with Arian Foster and helping kick off the launch of The Arian Foster Family Foundation. For every ride taken on Wednesday and Thursday, you can support families and youth in underserved communities across Houston.

“This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness about the launch of my foundation and to help build momentum around empowering the next generation. Thanks to Uber and riders across Houston, we can truly make a difference in our communities.”  

– Arian Foster, Running Back and Arian Foster Family Foundation Founder


Request a ride by tapping the “DONATE” option at the bottom of your screen this Tuesday and Wednesday, and Uber will donate $1 to the Arian Foster Family Foundation.


HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Open the app anytime Tuesday, October 6th and Wednesday, October 7th
  2. Select DONATE at the bottom of your screen
  3. Request a ride, and Uber will donate $1 for every trip

When you request uberDONATE, your fare will be the same as a typical uberX ride.

What is the Arian Foster Family Foundation?

This foundation was created by Arian Foster with the mission of empowering the next generation to realize stronger, healthier, more hopeful futures. Guided by Arian’s own experiences growing up, they support families and youth in underserved neighborhoods by improving access to nutritious food, financial education, and opportunities for personal development.
