A press release explained, “The National Fuel Gas Company Foundation, a 501(c)(3) private foundation funded entirely by shareholders, was formed in 2004 to better establish National Fuel’s commitment to the community. As such, we strive to fund innovative programs, initiatives and, on rare occasions, special events, that fall within the pillars of National Fuel's community giving policies, and promise to advance strong, vibrant and stable communities. These pillars, or focus areas, include veteran services, education, community vitality/economic impact, and the underserved/economically disadvantaged.

“Since 2005, National Fuel, its employees, and the foundation have given more than $19 million to more than 800 charitable organizations throughout the U.S. We are proud of our record of generosity through both charitable contributions and volunteer activities in all of the places where we do business.”
