The funds will be used to facilitate the purchase of new fire patrol and emergency response boats. The boats will bolster emergency response times on the lake, while also contributing to the overall safety for residents, boaters and commercial fisherman on Lake Maurepas.  

Lake Maurepas Community Fund

Air Products is committed to being a good neighbor in Louisiana and in all areas where we operate. Our work through the Lake Maurepas Community Fund and the Louisiana Clean Energy Complex further deepens that commitment. 

Air Products will commit $1 million
annually—via its charitable giving affiliate,
  the Air Products Foundation—to communities bordering Lake Maurepas.

Funding began in 2023 and will continue through the overall operation of the Louisiana Clean Energy Complex,
which is currently anticipated
to be at least 25 years.

Non-profit organizations that support ecological, educational and recreational improvements for those who live, work and visit the Lake Maurepas area are eligible for grants.

Air Products’ Commitment to Louisiana 

Our company’s more than 330 Louisiana-based employees perform many volunteer activities and make other contributions to organizations in the communities surrounding our 18 facilities in the state. In addition to promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, Air Products employees in Louisiana support volunteer organizations that improve the lives of people, including the United Way, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and the IRIS Domestic Violence Center. Not only do we live and work here—we also volunteer here.

Supporting the future Farmers in Ascension Parish

Air Products was proud to sponsor the 2024 Ascension Parish Livestock Show in January, where young people were able to show off the commitment and dedication it takes to raise livestock. We were happy to partner with local 4-H Clubs and the LSU Ag Center to support this worthy cause. We’re also proud to have Air Products’ employees’ family members participate and place in the show.
