EQT Foundation Announces New GIVE Campaigns in Washington and Marion Counties

PITTSBURGH, NOVEMBER 29, 2022 –On this Giving Tuesday, EQT Corporation (NYSE: EQT) announced $42,500 in donations across the Company’s operating footprint to help make this holiday season a little brighter—and warmer—for families most in need. In addition, the EQT Foundation announced an expansion to its GIVE Campaign program.

This year, EQT is supporting a range of causes with its Giving Tuesday donation including:

  • $1,000 donations to several school districts across Washington and Greene Counties (Pa.) to support school-sponsored holiday programs for students and families in need
  • $10,000 donation to Dollar Energy Fund to help offset heating and utility costs for limited-income families and individuals
  • Support for warming and food assistance programs across the region

EQT also provided support for the 52nd Annual Moundsville Christmas Parade and the Marshall County Family Resource Network in West Virginia.

EQT Foundation Expands GIVE Campaign Program

In addition to the corporate donations, the EQT Foundation is partnering with local community foundations to establish GIVE Campaigns in Washington County (Pa.) and Marion County (W.VA.). 

The EQT Foundation is providing $25,000 in seed funding to create funds in both counties that are designed to support charitable causes. The funds will be held and maintained by the community foundations. The hope is that over time, and with support from local leaders and businesses in the region, the funds will grow to allow for continual financial support for nonprofits, schools, municipalities, and the like, for years to come.

The EQT Foundation has already established GIVE Campaign funds in Belmont County (Ohio), Greene County (Pa.) and Wetzel County (W.Va.). 

EQT Employees Give Time and Donations This Giving Tuesday

In addition to expanding the GIVE Campaign program, EQT Foundation is also sponsoring a special Giving Tuesday match program for employees. The Foundation will double match all employee donations made on Giving Tuesday to eligible nonprofits up to $25,000. In 2021, EQT and its employees raised more than $293,000 through the match program. 

“At EQT, we believe it’s our responsibility to give back. Being a good neighbor is a critical piece of our Company’s mission,” said EQT Foundation President Ellen Rossi. “Giving Tuesday is just one of many opportunities throughout the year for our employees to give back to the communities where we live and operate. Whether it’s through donations or volunteer time, they are always willing to step up and help those most in need.”

Along with the special match program, EQT employees also had the opportunity to participate in an array of Giving Tuesday volunteer projects ranging from virtual toy drives to adopting local families in need of holiday presents.

EQT, which is the largest natural gas producer in the United States with operations in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio, is a member of Pledge 1%, an initiative to encourage employees to pledge 1% of their time each year to volunteering in the communities in which they live and work. To date, more than 13,000 volunteer hours have been tracked by employees to reach the company’s 1% volunteer goal.
