Established in 1965, the Halliburton Foundation supports education at all levels and charitable organizations through employee matching gifts, direct grants and scholarships. The Halliburton Foundation is a domestic foundation. Requests for grants in non-U.S. locations should be made directly to the Halliburton office doing business in that part of the world.
Employee Matching Gifts Program
This program includes the matching of U.S.-based employee donations on a two-for-one basis, up to $20,000 annually per employee for accredited junior colleges, colleges and universities. Additionally, U.S.-based employee donations to accredited elementary and secondary schools are matched by the Foundation on a one-for-one basis, up to $500 annually per employee.
The Halliburton Foundation makes direct donations to U.S.-based elementary and secondary schools and colleges and universities. At its discretion, the Foundation board of trustees also makes a limited number of grants to health and health-related charities. Grant requests are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
The Halliburton Foundation grants scholarships to the children of employees based on a demonstration of financial need. To be eligible, children must be a senior in high school and must attend a four-year accredited institution in the U.S. The scholarship review process is administered by an organization separate from the Halliburton Foundation.
In 2012, the Halliburton Foundation donated over $2.6 million to support the above-mentioned programs.
