Our employees are the driving force behind our community investment initiatives.
We support employee involvement in local charities through our volunteer and matching gifts programs.
In 2018, 188 ConocoPhillips staff volunteered 1,717 hours. We spent that time in a variety of ways, including serving lunches at the Calgary Drop-In Centre, making lunches for kids through Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids, cleaning up local playgrounds and helping children learn to read at Calgary’s Connaught School.
In recognition of the energy, enthusiasm and expertise donated by employees through volunteer hours to charitable organizations and to further encourage these efforts, permanent employees who spend more than 40 hours in the year volunteering with a local non-profit can apply to have CPC donate up to $500 to that organization on behalf of the employee through the ConocoPhillips Valuing Volunteers Fund.
Our ConocoPhillips Employee Matching Gift Program matches eligible employees’ charitable donations up to $10,000 CAD per year, to Canadian registered charities, municipalities and accredited post-secondary institutions.
