Focus areas

Through the Celanese Foundation, improving the world is a corporate value enriched by the commitment and resources of the world’s leading technology and specialty materials company. Success is measured one relationship at time. It’s built on collaboration and a shared mission to create lasting change in the communities where we live and work.

Driven by the passion of Celanese employees, the Foundation works to make sustainable change one person at a time.

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 in the areas of:




Primary education


Safe places to live & grow

In these ways, we believe we will improve the world.


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.
