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.

How Our Sites Are Growing the Good for Education
As one of the Albemarle Foundation’s core pillars of giving, we recognize that education should not be a luxury and that quality education sets students up for successful lives. Unfortunately, many teachers report spending their own money to purchase classroom supplies and many families struggle to afford the tools their students need to learn. At sites across the globe, our employees donate time and money to help ensure students and teachers have what they need to succeed.
