Living Our Core Values

Our core values drive us to be a responsible member of the communities where we operate, and that includes partnering with nonprofit organizations to strengthen the places we call home.

Corporate Giving

We partner with local nonprofit organizations to meet community needs through financial and in-kind donations. We do this by supporting organizations in four giving categories. Request a donation.


Supporting United Way

Every fall, Chesapeake hosts an employee-driven companywide fundraising campaign for our local United Way chapters with Chesapeake matching employee donations 100%. During a two-month period, our corporate campus and field offices hold a variety of activities to raise donations and awareness about the organization and its beneficiaries. In Oklahoma City, Chesapeake consistently has one of the largest employee giving campaigns benefitting United Way of Central Oklahoma each year.

 

Volunteering

Community service is core to our company culture, so much so that we have a program — the H.E.L.P. (Helping Energize Local Progress) Initiative — dedicated to encouraging our employees to volunteer. Through this initiative, employees may use four hours of company time per year to volunteer at the nonprofit of their choice. If your organization needs volunteer support, contact our Social Responsibility team

Mentoring

A cornerstone of our H.E.L.P. Initiative is the Chesapeake Mentoring Program. Chesapeake employees have a longstanding commitment to mentoring students in Oklahoma City schools. In the last 20 years, Chesapeake has built one of the largest mentoring programs in the state. Each week during the school year, more than 250 employees visit one on one with elementary, middle and high school students during their workday.
