Focused Areas of Giving
Diversity and Inclusion
We directly support Linde’s commitment to inclusion by contributing to educational and professional diversity-focused organizations and programs/initiatives.
We are committed to providing educational opportunities for the next generation of STEM leaders and for students who may not have the means to pursue an education.
We support organizations that help protect and conserve the earth’s natural resources for future generations.
Health and Wellness
We are focused on advancing medical research and health education initiatives, as well as supporting many of our local hospitals and hospices.
We are dedicated to being a good corporate neighbor and giving back to the communities in which we live and work.
We provide natural disaster relief around the world.
Through Linde’s Global Giving Program, eligible employees in the U.S. and all over the world can request a company matching gift to double the impact of their personal contribution(s). This enables Linde to directly support our people’s community investments and involvement. Information on matching gifts is available for employees on Airwaves. Matching gifts should be aligned with Linde’s focused areas of giving.
Employee Volunteer Grants
Employees who volunteer time, talent or provide financial support to an eligible non-profit organization are encouraged to submit a grant request to the Linde Global Giving Program for consideration. Grant requests should be aligned with Linde’s focused areas of giving.
The level of support granted is commensurate with employee involvement in the project and how well it fits within program guidelines. Grant applications are reviewed monthly. You will be contacted with the determination of your request even if it is not approved.
Our Global Giving Program is conducted consistent with Linde's Code of Business Integrity and all applicable laws. Working with United Way Worldwide, Linde will continue to ensure that our international gifts meet this standard.
