Since its inception, the EQT Foundation has awarded more than $74 million to nonprofits throughout the operational footprint of EQT Corporation. We are committed to supporting the education and training of children and adults; the development of diverse, livable communities; and preserving our natural environments.
We believe in meaningful engagement with the communities we call home and we take great pride in being responsible and responsive corporate citizens. Through a practice of trust-based philanthropy, we focus our resources on areas that have a direct effect on the stability of communities and, in turn, contribute to the success of business operations in those areas.
The EQT Foundation helps communities prosper through focused giving.
Encourage the development of diverse, safe, healthy, and sustainable communities, which can help to retain residential, commercial and economic growth.
Examples: Food banks, libraries, farmers markets, arts & music programs, community festivals & initiatives
The EQT Foundation is proud to be a long-standing supporter of Operation Warm, which helps to provide brand-new winter coats and shoes to children across North America. Our support and partnership have provided children in Appalachia with emotional warmth, confidence and hope.
Education & Workforce
Promote proficiency in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) topics for youth, as well as training programs to create a future skilled workforce.
Examples: In-school STEM-based curricula, computer and science camps, project-based learning, teacher professional development, career planning and preparation
The Education Partnership (TEP) is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that helps to serve teachers and students throughout southwestern Pennsylvania by providing necessary supplies for classrooms and for the children to be successful. From three-ring binders and paper to space heaters and filing cabinets, TEP is a constant resource for ensuring success for every student. Through their Adopt-A-School program, the EQT Foundation has been providing Power Tool Homework Kits to students in the Ringgold School District.
Support the preservation of natural resources, and educate children, residents, and businesses to employ conservation techniques to minimize adverse impacts on the environment.
Examples: community gardens, watershed conservation, environmental education, preservation and restoration of green spaces
The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy protects and restores exceptional places to provide the region with clean waters, healthy forests, wildlife and natural areas for the benefit of all.
