EQT contributes thousands of dollars each year to sponsor fairs, festivals and other local community events in counties where we have regional offices or active field operations. These opportunities allow EQT to financially support regional gatherings; allow our neighbors to meet our employees, ask questions or offer comments on topics that are most important to them; and receive immediate feedback.
Across our three-state footprint, EQT contributes to local fire departments, food banks, senior centers and other community-based projects or charities. These donations are geographically limited to areas with active drilling, completion or production activity.
In mid-2019, EQT started a new program to support the efforts of local 4-H/FFA groups across our operating area. This allows us to support the hard work and dedication of regional youth involved in agricultural programs while simultaneously giving back to local charities.
EQT employees are encouraged to participate and volunteer with local nonprofit organizations that allow them to provide goodwill in communities across our operating area. Volunteer opportunities can be cultivated by our individual employees or facilitated by the company.
