Albemarle Foundation

Albemarle Foundation - Grow the Good

Across the world, we believe that nurturing our communities and promoting our employees’ philanthropic efforts are among our most important responsibilities. Over the years, Albemarle, our employees and retirees have invested millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours in support of our communities. In 2007, Albemarle created the Albemarle Foundation - a private endowed 501c3 entity who set out with a mission to make a positive, sustainable difference in the communities where we live and operate.

Today, Albemarle Foundation builds on this history of commitment and participation to make an even greater, more sustainable and profound impact on the places we call home. By utilizing the tools and resources of Albemarle Foundation, Albemarle Foundation Global and the Albemarle Care Fund - employees are empowered to Grow the Good in our own communities, and beyond!
