In addition to the economic value of the jobs and taxes that come about as a result of the refinery, Shell believes deeply that investing in our community is a critical element of being a good neighbor in the areas where we operate. We are proud of our demonstrated support and financial commitment to Anacortes and Skagit County, where in 2015 we donated nearly $425,000 in sponsorships, employee contributions and corporate matches to local community organizations.

Shell is proud to support dozens of local non-profits including environmental organizations like the Anacortes Community Forest Lands, Padilla Bay Foundation and the Skagit Land Trust, human services organizations like the Red Cross, United Way of Skagit County, and Boys & Girls Club of Skagit County, educational organizations like the Anacortes Schools Foundation, Skagit Valley College and Bellingham Technical College, civic organizations like the Anacortes and La Conner Rotary clubs, as well as business organizations like local Chambers of Commerce and the Economic Development Association of Skagit County.

Our community investments consist of more than financial contributions, as many of our employees and contractors also serve the community by volunteering at local schools, coaching local youth sports and serving on local non-profit boards.
