Every October, employees in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia proudly pledge money to their charities of choice through our annual workplace giving program, Giving Choices. In addition to providing a 10 percent matching gift, Halliburton also absorbs any administrative fees to support the campaign. The Giving Choices program continues to expand to new regions, and in 2015, employees in 17 countries pledged more than $3.1 million USD to assist their local communities. The life-changing effects of these gifts can be seen across the globe.
In 2008, the company pioneered a regionalized version of this program in several countries in the Middle East, where Halliburton has a significant presence of employees and operations. The campaign takes place annually during the holy month of Ramadan.
