At Whiting we strive to strategically invest in the communities where we live and work. We know our employees and their gifts make communities stronger. Whiting’s community investments support education, health and safety, natural resources, social services and disaster relief.
Creating the energy professionals of tomorrow is a high priority at Whiting. We make consistent investments to the universities we recruit from the most. We also support local school districts in our operating areas. In 2018, we partnered with the McKenzie County School District to help create a technical and career academy for students. The goal of the program is to meaningfully engage local students to showcase the professional opportunities in the oil and gas industry in North Dakota.
Each Whiting office is empowered to make the biggest impact on their community. Local offices receive budgets to support or create community events. In addition to office budgets, Whiting gave over $500,000 dollars in gifts to support the organizations our offices partnered with.
Our employees are our best asset and we want to support the causes they care most about. In additional to our corporate gifts, we are proud to support their charitable gifts through our matching gifts program. Each year Whiting will match employee donations, up to $2,500 annually.
