We know our success is a direct result of the strength, goodwill and vitality of the communities where we operate, and we want to share our achievements and good fortunes with those that help make it possible for us to lead a responsible energy future.
At Chesapeake, we deploy a three-tired approach to fostering development, which includes serving as an economic catalyst through job creation and investment; building strong relationships and open lines of communication to address community concerns; and contributing to these communities through our giving programs, scholarships and volunteering. In 2013, our employees volunteered more than 42,000 hours for more than 400 nonprofit organizations across the country. Through our charitable giving and in-kind donations, we supported more than 900 organizations. Additionally, employees mentored nearly 350 students in three Oklahoma City inner-city schools and two schools in Woodward, Oklahoma during the 2013-2014 school year.
