We aspire to make a positive difference in the communities where we fly.
At Southwest Airlines, we have a passion for people—a passion to share the spirit in the communities where we live and work. Bringing people together, inspiring change, and making a difference in people’s lives—it’s all part of being a good neighbor. We give back to our communities not only with our time and monetary donations, but also by donating roundtrip tickets, which allows nonprofit organizations to focus their resources on the communities where they are needed most.
To maximize the positive difference in the communities where we fly, we support global and national nonprofit organizations, champion our own Southwest Airlines giving programs, and encourage individual Employees and community members to volunteer and advocate for the causes they believe in most. For our 40th Anniversary in 2011, we developed special giving programs to celebrate with our Employees, Customers, and communities.
