Ryder System Charitable Foundation

In 1991, the Ryder System Charitable Foundation became the founding benefactor of Ryder Trauma Center when it provided a $2.5M naming gift to fill a critical community need by building a Level-1 adult and pediatric trauma center in Miami-Dade County.  The campaign for Ryder Trauma was the start of Jackson Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Jackson Health System.

From that point forward, Jackson and Ryder System began their journey of strengthening the culture of philanthropy for the betterment of the patients and families who depend on the health system.

Throughout the years, Ryder System has demonstrated great social responsibility and community involvement. They have a long legacy of building stronger communities by contributing services, dollars, volunteers, and expertise to those who need it most.

On its 25th anniversary, Ryder Trauma Center commends Ryder System for their ongoing support.
