In 2014, we launched our community investment and engagement program, QEP Cares, to align our contributions, partnerships and volunteer efforts to have a greater impact. We contribute our time, talent and financial resources to improve communities in which we live and work. We engage employees in giving and volunteering for the causes that matter most to them and to QEP. We strive to inspire others to make a difference.
QEP Cares encompasses contributions and partnerships in three categories:
Corporate Giving Pillars: We create partnerships that leverage our investments in STEM Education & Scholarships, Health & Wellness and Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness.
Employee Giving & Volunteering: QEP is fortunate to have talented, generous employees who are involved in our communities. We provide opportunities for them to share their skills and expertise through corporate and individual volunteerism and other initiatives. We reward and recognize their financial and volunteer contributions with corporate matching dollars.
Local Giving: We support a variety of local causes that meet the unique needs of the communities we serve.
STEM Education & Scholarships
By focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, QEP helps inspire the next generation of scientists, technology experts, engineers and mathematicians.
Health & Wellness
We support programs that promote healthy behaviors and provide medical services for children in the communities in which we live and work.
Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness
We leverage our expertise in this area by partnering with and investing in local fire departments, emergency preparedness agencies and the American Red Cross to build resilient communities that are prepared to withstand disasters and other catastrophic events.
The Local Giving program supports our communities’ unique needs outside of our defined pillars.
We Believe in Miracles
QEP partners with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across our areas of operation to fund specific projects.
Project Lead the Way
We partner with school districts to implement Project Lead the Way, the nation’s leading provider of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs. Project Lead the Way’s Gateway to Technology and Pathway to Engineering programs prepare students for STEM careers.
Contribute, Engage, Inspire
Through QEP Cares, we contribute our time, talent and financial resources to improve communities in which we live and work. We engage employees in giving and volunteering for the causes that matter most to them and to QEP. We strive to inspire others to make a difference.
