Matching Program Guidelines

Halliburton Foundation

Am I eligible?

You are eligible if you are a regular full-time employee or a retired employee (retired for five years or less) of Halliburton or any of its U.S. subsidiaries or divisions that contribute to the Foundation. At the time of your contribution, you must have completed at least one full year of employment. (There is no continuous service requirement). Outside directors and retired directors of Halliburton also are eligible.

What kinds of donations qualify for matching funds?

Halliburton Foundation will consider matching donations to accredited U.S. colleges, universities or junior colleges. Institution-affiliated funds, foundations or associations may also be eligible if they directly support the Foundation’s primary educational objectives.

What types of donations may be eligible?

Donations must be personal gifts of cash or securities made directly to an eligible institution. The value of securities will be determined based on the closing price per share on the date the gift is made. Contributions made by eligible employees to all qualifying universities, colleges and junior colleges are limited to a total of $20,000 (including cash and securities) per calendar year. Eligible retirees may contribute up to a total of $10,000. Contributions made by eligible donors to all qualifying elementary and secondary education facilities are limited to a total of $500 (including cash and securities) per calendar year. The Foundation does not match any unpaid portion of a pledged gift.
