No. 20: Southwest Airlines

Southwest may be known for its work in the air, but it’s also on the ground working for healthy communities. In addition to in-kind contributions and grant support, Southwest employees provided 114,000 volunteer hours in 2011. Programs like “Adopt-A-Pilot” have employed aviation-themed activities related to science, writing, and other core subjects to educate an estimated 349,000 students. Southwest also donates round-trip tickets to nonprofits throughout the country so they don’t bust their budgets on expensive airfares.
