In 2014, we launched our community investment and engagement program, QEP Cares, to align our contributions, partnerships 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 is honored to have been named one of Colorado’s most community- minded companies as part of The 2019 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.
QEP Cares encompasses contributions and partnerships in three categories:
Corporate Giving Pillars: We create partnerships that leverage our investments in STEM Education & Scholarships, Health & Wellness, Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness and Local Culture & Heritage.
Employee Giving & Volunteering: QEP is fortunate to have talented, generous employees who are involved in our communities. We provide opportunities for them to share their skills and expertise through corporate and individual volunteerism and other initiatives. We reward and recognize their financial and volunteer contributions with corporate matching dollars.
Industry Collaboration: The energy industry and its employees consistently support the community through contributions, volunteerism and advocacy. QEP often joins with our industry colleagues to collaborate on strategic local community investments in order to leverage our combined resources for the greatest impact. Employees lead the way in these collaborative efforts through contributions of their time, talent and financial contributions in addition to QEP’s investments.
