Halliburton Foundation

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.

Halliburton supports primarily tax-exempt non-profit organizations dedicated to education, health, the environment and health-related community programs. Support for civic issues, arts and cultural programs may also be considered in areas where there is a significant presence of Halliburton employees and operations. In 2008, the company donated more than $2.2 million to support community initiatives.

Contribution requests are reviewed on a quarterly basis by a Community Relations Review Board (CRRB). The deadlines for submitting requests are Jan. 31, April 30, July 31 and Oct. 31.

All requests for cash or in-kind donations should be sent in writing to:

Community Relations
10200 Bellaire Boulevard
Houston, TX 77072-5206

This appears to be a good source of funding for national BDPA programs.

On the other hand, the Halliburton Foundation will accept grant proposals from U.S. based non-profit organizations that provide support in the area of Education. Strong preference is given to organizations in areas where Halliburton has a significant presence as measured by facilities, employees and customers. It appears that the only two BDPA chapters that are co-located with Haliburton are: Dallas and Houston.

Requests for contributions from the Halliburton Foundation should be sent to:

Halliburton Foundation
Program Administrator
10200 Bellaire Boulevard
Houston, Texas 77072-5206

BETF is willing to partner with either BDPA Dallas or BDPA Houston chapter if they are interested in seeking funding for their annual SITES program.
