Contributing to special charities and local communities to which we belong is how we stay true to our core values. Our goal is to ensure that our organization imparts positive impact back to the communities in which we work and live. We are committed to responsibly deploying our financial resources, time and talent in ways that yield tangible and measurable results.
Each year, Oasis Petroleum takes on community service projects and actively supports organizations and charities near and dear to our heart. Historically, we have focused on projects that involve humanitarian aid. Recent projects have had a focus on family and children. Whether building a house for a deserving family in need through Habitat for Humanity, helping underprivileged high school students reach their full potential and graduate from college through OneGoal, or assisting youth, graduating out of foster care, in becoming independent through the HAY Center, giving back to the community is of utmost importance to us.
