Building on decades of philanthropy
The Baker Hughes Foundation is advancing transformational progress in individuals, families and the environment in more places globally.
For 25 years, the Baker Hughes Foundation has been a steward of charitable resources for meaningful community impact. The Foundation seeks to support organizations with shared values, demonstrated leadership, evidence of impact, financial soundness, and the capacity to implement initiatives and evaluate their success.

Any donations made by the Foundation must reflect the Foundation’s commitment to furthering these purposes, and must be in compliance with applicable legal and ethical standards.
Enriching Lives through Inclusive Education and Training
The Foundation supports organizations that help all individuals achieve their fullest potential. We're investing in youth to give educators and students access to technology and tools to help them thrive. The Foundation partners with FIRST Global to elevate STEM in youth around the world.
FIRST Global (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) levels STEM opportunities by targeting regions and populations that have traditionally lacked access to quality education, with a special focus on females and underserved populations.
Buffalo Bayou Partnership
Promoting Sustainability in Communities
The Foundation supports activities and programs that manage, conserve or sustain natural environments. From helping to keep land and water clean in communities to supporting some of the world's most pressing environmental challenges, the Foundation is prepared to help.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, BHGE volunteers contributed to removing sand, trash and debris along Buffalo Bayou in Houston, Texas. In coordination with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, these efforts supported a faster and heathier recovery of a critical waterway in the city.
BHGE's MS150 Team
Advancing Public Health & Safety
The Foundation supports activities and programs that enable people to increase control over, and to improve, their health and wellness. Fundraising at BHGE is employee-driven.
Inspired by good health in 2018, the BHGE Fullstream Team organized in support of finding an end to multiple sclerosis through the MS-150 bike ride and raised over $160,000.
