The Southwest Airlines Medical Transportation Grant Program provides complimentary, roundtrip tickets to nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation organizations. We’re proud to partner with select nonprofit hospitals and organizations in our Medical Transportation Grant Program. The participating nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation nonprofit organizations are allowed the freedom to determine how to distribute the tickets to patients and/or caregivers.
As part of Southwest’s Tickets for Time program, for every 40 hours an Employee volunteers for a nonprofit, that organization is eligible to receive one complimentary, round-trip ticket on Southwest. This program was launched in 2010 to support and appreciate our passionate Employee Volunteers.
Since 1985, the Southwest Airlines LUV Classic Charity Golf Tournament and Party has donated more than $16 million to benefit deserving children’s charities. Each year, more than 500 golfers from around the country come to Brookhaven Golf Club to participate in this fun, unique tournament. The LUV Classic is a scramble tournament, consisting of contests including closest-to-the-pin and a straightest drive. Join us to show off your golf game, support a great cause, and take a swing at the many ways to win!
Southwest Airlines is committed to giving back to the communities where our Customers and Employees live and work. Community Giving Boards are made up of Employees from various work groups who evaluate donation requests Southwest receives from nonprofit charitable organizations in their community. The Boards donate complimentary, roundtrip travel to support qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that meet our guidelines for fundraising or transportation purposes.
