Contribution Guidelines

Program Areas

Shell Deer Park will consider charitable contributions to eligible non-profit organizations for select programs that fall within our focused areas of contributions.

  • Education - We support local school districts for a variety of educational initiatives. We pay special attention to K-12 programs that boost Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills and look for requests that demonstrate broad student body impact over smaller club activities.
  • Workforce Development - Shell considers itself a leader in the workforce development space in the Deer Park area. The need for skilled technical workers in the upcoming years plays a critical role in the industry’s success, and Shell seeks to help upskill potential workers.
  • Environment & Biodiversity - Protecting the environment is a top priority of our site and its employees. As part of this commitment, we support local projects that promote environmental stewardship, including restoration and protection of critical ecosystems, and support wildlife conservation and/or habitat projects.
  • Civic & Community Need – We focus our civic and community need support primarily through our Community Grants program. We fund projects ranging from area-wide business and economic development initiatives to local neighborhood efforts.
  • Emergency Response Planning – We are dedicated to protecting the community around us. It is critical that the community understands what to do in the case of an emergency, and that industry members know how to respond effectively and efficiently alongside each other and our first responders. Shell focuses on emergency communications and industry initiatives that support this outcome.
