Denbury actively and enthusiastically supports community-based programs and organizations that address educational, cultural and social issues—improving the quality of life in the areas where we work and live. Our commitment includes financial contributions as well as coordination and support of volunteer services by our employees. Our employees are encouraged to give generously to charitable organizations of their choosing, with Denbury providing a matching contribution to support their efforts. Together, we have made a difference in our communities through contributions to numerous local charities and organizations.


Our Charitable Contributions Committee is comprised of employees from various departments throughout the Company working together to determine the best use of our resources to meet the needs of our communities. The committee was formed to supplement the Company’s other charitable contributions with a focus on contributing to organizations identified and supported by our employees. The committee meets monthly to distribute budgeted funds to select charitable organizations supported and nominated by Denbury employees in the areas of education, veterans, health and human service. In addition, each of our field offices is allocated a specific charitable contribution budget so that they can give back to local organizations throughout the year.

Annually the Committee helps sponsor the Society of Petroleum Engineers softball tournament benefitting SPE Dallas Community Outreach & Education, which provides assistance to science programs in the Dallas Fort-Worth area.

Denbury seeks out opportunities to provide financial support to charitable organizations to which Denbury employees donate their time and resources.

Investing in our communities is not purely about monetary donations. In addition to financial contributions, Denbury is committed to encouraging and supporting our employees’ involvement in community service and philanthropic events and projects. To support our employees in their commitment to volunteer, we provide a paid day off from work to participate in service projects of their choosing. Additionally, Denbury coordinates group participation in fundraising and service projects that our employees are passionate about.
