Who we are
The Celanese Foundation is 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.
The Foundation is funded through employee contributions that are matched dollar for dollar by Celanese Corporation, whose additional monetary contributions finance all administrative and operating costs and provide above-and-beyond investment in the communities where we live and work.
Established in 2013, the Celanese Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, focuses on initiatives to improve the fundamental living conditions of people, with a special focus on families and children. Through partnerships in our communities, Celanese employees guide our decision-making process and are involved in all aspects of our community support.
The Foundation is run by Celanese employees with oversight from the foundation board. Local site committees determine the selection of charities to support, guided by employee interests.
Organizations that receive charitable gifts have missions aligned with the Foundation’s focus areas of hunger relief, shelter, fundamental education, health, and water.
Since the Foundation was established in 2013, Celanese employees, suppliers and the corporation have provided millions of dollars in charitable aid and more than 200,000 hours in community support around the world.
In addition to financial support, the Celanese Foundation enriches communities through a variety of programs including the Employee Volunteer Program, the Matching Gifts Program, the Annual Employee Giving Campaign, Global Impact Week, the Celanese International Impact Program, and the Annual Celanese Foundation Golf Outing benefitting the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
