WE’RE BETTER TOGETHER
Across 38 states, we are committed to being a good neighbor, business partner and valued member of the communities in which our employees live and work. We have long-standing commitments to causes including MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, The Salvation Army, American Heart Association, Ronald McDonald House and many more.
YOUR COMMUNITY IS OUR COMMUNITY
Big or small, national or local, every charitable organization has an important role in our communities. Our corporate giving efforts focus on nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations across the U.S. including education, hunger, health, veteran support, children’s causes, environmental stewardship and combating homelessness. Here are some of our recent efforts that are close to our heart.
The economic and personal impact from the COVID-19 pandemic has been more devastating than any of us could have imaged. Throughout this time, the health and safety of our employees and those in the communities in which we work have remained our priority.
While implementing a number of safety precautions at all levels of our business, we have also looked for ways – big and small – to honor the healthcare workers on the front lines and to help those who have been impacted by the challenging economics during this difficult time.
We were pleased to partner with Parkland Foundation on the “Healthcare Heroes” video campaign thanking healthcare professionals. For each video submitted, Energy Transfer is donating $50 to Parkland Foundation’s Public Health Preparedness Fund, up to a total of $100,000. DallasHealthcareHeroes.com
We were also pleased to support a number of local organizations during this time such as the Dallas Police Department, San Antonio Food Bank, Mercy Street Dallas, the Delaware County, PA police for a mobile response shelter, Upper Merion Township, PA police and fire departments for X2 MR Glasses, and Faith Restorations Food Bank in Beaver County, PA.
FUNDING CRITICAL CANCER RESEARCH
We are proud to support the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital and to fund critical research to advance pediatric cancer treatments. Recently, Energy Transfer and the Sunoco Foundation donated $2 million to MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. This most recent donation is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting organizations that make a real difference in people’s lives and the communities in which they live. Together with our employees, Energy Transfer has donated more than $6.1 million to MD Anderson since 2014.
SPECIAL OLYMPICS PA
We have partnered with Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) for a three-year $450,000 sponsorship that will help further SOPA’s mission to broaden opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
Energy Transfer will be recognized as the Premier “Guardians of the Flame” Sponsor of SOPA’s Law Enforcement Torch Runs. Members of law enforcement, SOPA athletes and volunteers carry the “Flame of Hope” which symbolizes courage and the celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
One of our core values is being a good neighbor by giving back to the communities in which we live, work and serve. Energy Transfer and Sunoco L.P. are proud sponsors of the new soccer complex and field at Mercy Street, a Christian-based non-profit organization that provides safe after school activities to the children of West Dallas.
