Praxair Supports Communities.....

Praxair Supports Communities.....

Praxair focuses its community support in the countries, cities and towns where it operates and further concentrates on four areas: community health; public libraries; higher education and diversity; and employee volunteerism. The bulk of Praxair’s support went to healthcare services around the world, including the Shanghai Children’s Hospital, and Renascer in Brazil, a program that helps children living in poverty stay healthy after being discharged from a hospital.


In India, we are funding Akshaya Patra, a program that provides a nutritious breakfast to thousands of school children so that they can stay in school and learn. Praxair employees participate in fund-raising walks, runs, bicycle rides and other activities to support numerous other health-related organizations in the communities where Praxair operates. Praxair's "Library Links" program has funded a variety of needs at public libraries in 40 states.


Among these projects are updating computer equipment; acquiring new reference materials; sponsoring summer reading programs and literacy courses; refurbishing meeting rooms. Praxair is an active supporter of organizations such as the U.S. National Society of Black Engineers and the U.S. National Black MBA Association, and sponsors a number of educational and diversity programs.


Praxair matches employee donations to colleges, United Way and other community organizations and employees may apply for grants to non-profit organizations to which they donate their time and talents.
