Valero's Community Investment and Commitment Program reflects the company's willingness to create better living environments in communities. Valero provides funding for many causes and community organizations, while encouraging volunteer initiatives of its employees in the community.
Valero's Community Investment and Commitment Program reflects the company's philanthropic vision, where communities benefit from its business activities both now and in the future. It aims to improve the citizens' quality life and make a real difference by providing support that responds to society's needs and challenges.
The Community Investment and Commitment Program consists of two components, one of which is to make financial contributions, while the other is in the form of involvement by Valero employees in volunteer work with local organizations.
As part of the investment component, Valero Energy established a donation and sponsorship program, as there are numerous causes that deserve support, and that is why guidelines have been developed to assist with the selection of philanthropic cases. Valero Energy supports initiatives in one or several niches of community involvement:
- Success and school perseverance;
- Families, women, immigrants and elders;
- Healthy lifestyle and food security.
The missions or initiatives of associations, organizations, institutions, persons or promoters wishing to submit an application must correspond to these sectors. Moreover, community initiatives receiving financial support from Valero Energy must generate concrete and measurable defining results both qualitatively and quantitatively within a given community.
Learn more about the eligibility criteria in the Guide for partners, which also reviews in detail the procedure to be followed in making an application.
Valero Energy also contributes to the financing of organizations where its employees are volunteers with its Commitment Guide. We also wish to point out that, under the terms of its matching policy, Valero Energy donates to national or regional institutions, foundations and organizations that appeal to the generosity of its employees.
Valero Energy matches the equivalent of 75% of individual donations from employees and retirees up to $1,000 per year per person.
