Focus Areas

The Celanese Foundation focuses on initiatives to improve the fundamental living conditions of people, with an emphasis on families and children. We are focused on areas of great need, where we can bring the resources and expertise of our corporation and our employees together with local partners to create meaningful, sustained change. Learn more about each focus area by hovering over the area of interest. Additional information is available in What We Do.

Families

Families make up the fabric of our community and they play an important role in helping children succeed. Families that are impacted by violence, drug abuse and unemployment are just a few causes that we support in order to keep our community safe.

Primary Education

Helping children, especially those in high-risk, high-poverty communities, requires special attention and support that many public schools cannot easily provide. Celanese Foundation financial gifts and volunteer efforts help students reach their full potential in school. We support organizations that are dedicated to providing academic, social and emotional support to help students graduate high school.

Safe Places to Live and Grow

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself or herself and family, yet this basic need remains unmet for many. Through Foundation support organizations designed to provide shelter to those impacted by homelessness or natural disaster, assist those affected by domestic violence and empower men and women to build and nurture their families.

Our Primary Mission

Get Involved

Welcome to the Celanese Foundation, an employee-led effort dedicated to improving the quality of life for people around the world. Our investments go directly to the charities we believe in and support through our own dollars and volunteer time.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Celanese Foundation focuses on creating opportunities for at-risk families to learn, grow and thrive. Our focus areas support programs and causes around families, primary education and safe places to live and grow. Through partnerships in our communities, Celanese employees guide our decision-making process and are involved in all aspects of our community support.

Organizations that receive funding have missions aligned with the Foundation’s focus areas.

We can make a difference together
