As responsible corporate citizens, KBR leads by example using philanthropy and a culture of volunteerism to better communities where we live and work.
We believe that being a good corporate citizen is vital to our success. It’s about using our success to strengthen the world around us. By actively benefiting surrounding communities through corporate and employee giving and volunteering events, we hope to enact meaningful social changes. Since 2007, KBR has contributed nearly $18 million and provided over 87,000 employee volunteer hours to benefit charitable causes around the globe. Our charity golf tournament, held annually in Houston, has raised more than $3.3 million since 2007 for local and national nonprofit organizations.
In the weeks after Hurricane Harvey, KBR corporate accounting team members saw on the news that the Houston Food Bank was in desperate need of volunteers to prepare and distribute food and decided that this was a cause they could all get behind. On September 21, the day they had chosen to volunteer, it was raining hard, causing minor flooding in some areas. Undeterred the volunteers made their way to the Food Bank warehouse, slipped into their KBR Houston Strong T-shirts, and went to work.
As part of KBR’s charitable partnership with the Houston Texans Foundation, KBR employees in Houston collected school supplies for children heading back to school.
KBR employees in Kwidzyn, Poland, planted hundreds of spruce saplings to rebuild the local ecosystem. The spruce will be a natural habitat for forest animals and create a sustainable plant system.
Since 2007, KBR has contributed nearly $18 million and provided over 87,000 employee volunteer hours to benefit charitable causes around the globe.
Focusing on areas like health, the environment and education lets us promote a healthier, sustainable and smarter planet. We focus on health initiatives that promote quality of life, education programs for youth with an emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects and environmental programs, like KBR’s One Ocean program that partners with middle and high school students to tackle the plastic pollution crisis in the world’s oceans.
