Supporting Local Communities

QEP’s commitment to our communities goes beyond being a good neighbor. We work with our stakeholders to create partnerships that have a positive and meaningful impact, making our communities a better place in which to live and work.

Upholding our commitment to our values – Responsible, Respectful and Resourceful – we support local communities not only through our operations in the form of capital investment, taxes and employment opportunities, but also through our community investment and engagement program, QEP Cares.

QEP is honored to have been named one of Colorado’s most community- minded companies as part of The Civic 50 Colorado, by CSR Solutions of Colorado in partnership with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.

The award recognizes QEP as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in Colorado determined by an independently administered and scored survey. The Civic 50 Colorado awards, modeled after Points of Light’s national program, provide a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact local communities.

Investing in Our Youth

Students study molecules as part of QEP Cares and QEP Resources' involvement with STEM partnerships.

Since 2014, QEP has invested more than $3.6 million in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education partnerships with school districts across our operating areas. QEP employees also volunteer their own time and talents to serve as volunteers, career coaches, guest speakers and job shadow hosts to expose students to our industry and STEM careers.

Our Employees Make a Difference

QEP Resources employees volunteer through QEP Cares.

QEP employees are active in the communities where they live and work — whether it’s walking to support the American Heart Association, mentoring STEM students or taking part in a community clean-up event. Our employees’ generosity is supported through programs such as volunteer paid time off, company gift matching, team sponsorships and more.

Making a Difference

QEP Resources through QEP Cares helps invest in communities, like the one for this family wearing cowboy hats.

QEP invests in our communities by focusing our contributions on key issues where we can make the maximum impact. We partner with local school districts and national organizations, such as the American Red Cross, to leverage our efforts and make a lasting difference.
