In 2014, we launched our corporate giving and volunteering program, QEP Cares, to align our contributions and volunteer efforts to have a greater impact. We contribute our time, talent and financial resources to improve communities in which we live and work. We engage employees in giving and volunteering for the causes that matter most to them and to QEP. We strive to inspire others to make a difference.
QEP Cares encompasses contributions in four categories:
Corporate Giving Pillars: We create partnerships that leverage our investments in STEM Education, Health & Wellness and Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness.
Employee Giving & Volunteering: We encourage and reward our employees’ generosity through volunteer paid time off, employee gift matching and more.
Scholarships: Through the QEP Education Foundation, we award approximately 100 scholarships annually to help educate the next generation of energy professionals.
Local Giving: We support a variety of local causes that meet the unique needs of the communities we serve.
By focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, QEP helps inspire the next generation of scientists, technology experts, engineers and mathematicians.
Health & Wellness
We support programs that promote healthy behaviors and provide medical services for children in the communities in which we live and work.
Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness
Our partnership with the American Red Cross supports year-round disaster relief and emergency preparedness.
The Local Giving program supports our communities’ unique needs outside of our defined pillars.
We Believe in Miracles
QEP partners with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across our areas of operation to fund specific projects.
Project Lead the Way
We partner with school districts to implement Project Lead the Way, the nation’s leading provider of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs. Project Lead the Way’s Gateway to Technology and Pathway to Engineering programs prepare students for STEM careers.
