Employees are the heart and soul of the Celanese Foundation. The Foundation relies upon Celanese employees to identify and create lasting partnerships in local communities where Foundation and employee support and volunteer efforts can improve the quality of life for people around the world.
There are a number of ways employees can get involved:
Employees are encouraged to make a difference in your local community by volunteering time and service to the causes closest to your heart. Celanese’s Global Volunteer Policy allows employees who have manager approval to take eight hours of paid time off a year to volunteer at the organization of your choice. Log your volunteer hours at https://celanesefoundation.yourcause.com/. Click on the “Volunteer” tab to record your volunteer hours. In some cases, organizations where employees volunteer receive the additional benefit of receiving a Foundation financial contribution for employee volunteer hours. Email CelaneseFoundation@celanese.com to determine if Celanese Foundation matching dollars are available at your site.

For Agencies and Charitable Organizations
We welcome your partnership with the Celanese Foundation and our employees. To ensure that our investments go to the charities our employees believe in and support through their own dollars and volunteer time, organizations and agencies most likely to be considered for funding are those nominated by a Celanese employee.
We focus on initiatives to improve the fundamental living conditions of people, with a special focus on families and children.
Please visit our What We Do to learn about our areas of focus and what we do not fund.
Organizations and agencies that would like to be considered for a Celanese Foundation gift can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to let us know if you have a Celanese employee or a group of employees actively volunteering on a regular basis or as members of your organization’s board.
