The oil and natural gas community is dedicated to making Colorado a better place, and their work doesn’t stop when they clock out at the end of the day. The 100,000 industry employees across the state show they care by donating their time and money to support more than 500 organizations across Colorado. Their extra efforts touch a variety of causes including arts and recreation to supporting veterans, educating youth and helping under-served families.
COGA’s members have demonstrated leadership on issues that Coloradans care about – not just through words, but through action, investing millions each year and volunteering thousands of hours. Our collective and ongoing work, whether out in the field or volunteering at a nonprofit, brings alignment to the values we all share – clean air and clean water, safe schools and strong families, support for our communities, and protecting the beautiful state that we all call home.
