At Noble Energy, we’re committed to providing the energy Colorado needs, supporting the economy we all want, and protecting the environment we all value. We also believe in giving back to the state and the communities that our employees call home.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility program helps foster a culture where our employees understand that to work at Noble Energy means embracing service within our neighborhoods and communities. One of the ways Noble Energy puts this value into action in Colorado is through meaningful charitable partnership with financial support and employee engagement.

We build our social investments on three strategic pillars:

Health and wellness

Environmental stewardship

Education/workforce development

Building long-term partnerships for bigger impact

Noble Energy has an established tradition of supporting organizations that better our communities in Colorado. Partnering with local organizations who help make a difference is crucial to our purpose of bettering people’s lives in the areas where we live and work. Learn more on some of the recent contributions Noble Energy has made to organizations that help Colorado thrive.

Weld Food Bank

Noble Energy’s partnership with the Weld Food Bank is one of our long-term community relationships that provides us with ways for both the company and our employees to give back to our communities in Northern Colorado.

Noble Energy employees volunteer hundreds of hours for the organization, with volunteer efforts totaling thousands of hours over the last decade. In 2019, we donated a $65,000 van to deliver food to the elderly and students across northern Colorado. We stepped up our financial support during the COVID-19 pandemic and have served for several years as the title sponsor for the “Stone Soup” fundraising event, which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to combat hunger in Weld County.

Colorado Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Chamber Foundation

From helping Hispanic professionals advance their careers through the Leadership Development Program to hosting a series of Lunch and Learn events dedicated to supporting and inspiring Latinas, Noble Energy is proud to support the work that the Colorado Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Chamber Foundation do to empower the Hispanic community in Colorado.

Denver Public Schools Foundation

Noble Energy supports the Denver Public Schools Foundation through the “Red Zone Program,” our official partnership with the Denver Broncos. Through the program, we donate $1,000 to DPS every time the Broncos reach the 20-yard red zone, and this year we hit the $100,000 mark! Noble also brought the game to life for several exemplary students by hosting them at a Broncos home game. Read more in the following section on this unique program and the major milestones we’ve reached together.

Noble Energy Red Zone Program: Official Partners with the Denver Broncos Supporting the DPS Foundation

Through the RedZone program with the Denver Broncos, Noble has supported Denver Public Schools (DPS) STEM programs with almost $180,000 contribution since 2014. Additionally, through the Noble Kids Program, more than 300 DPS students that are excelling in STEM have been recognized on the field during Broncos games.

Workforce development: STEAM education

Noble Energy also invests in our Colorado communities through numerous workforce development programs, emphasizing STEAM (science, engineering, technology, the arts, and math) education. Learn more about the programs we support.

Denver Public Schools Foundation

The partnership with the DPS Foundation is very dynamic, not only do we have an incredible partnership alongside the Denver Broncos but with employees volunteering each week with the Power Lunch Program in several schools. Additionally we have been supporting the DPS 8th Career Fair and the DPS Career Connect Program. Through this program we were pleased to welcome a group of students to the Noble Operations and Safety Training Center in Greeley, where we provided a tour of our training facility and helped educate the students about earth sciences, geology and oil and natural gas production.

Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain

Noble Energy supports Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc. (JA), which is part of the world’s largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, JA provides programs for students that focus on entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work readiness.

Investing in Environmental Stewardship

Noble Energy believes in being a good environmental steward. In addition to implementing our work culture of NO HARM, we support local organizations with a track record of success in making our environment cleaner and more sustainable. Learn more on some of the organizations we support or have supported.

Colorado Youth Outdoors

Noble has partnered with Colorado Youth Outdoors (CYO) since 2015. Bob Hewson, CEO and President of CYO, said that the first gifts that Noble shared with CYO were Noble employees who carved out time to mentor and support a group of teens who were looking for buddies to share the program with. “It wasn’t about the funding, it wasn’t about the free labor, it was about the time these employees took to support youth in need of a friend. This to me is the kindest gift any person, any business can share with this cause.” This year, CYO needed to reestablish vegetation due to the widening of 125 highway, to support the future and legacy of the campus and programming. More than 100 Noble employees helped build fencing and plant trees and bushes for CYO in September.

Through our donations and employee volunteer program, we have also provided $100,000 to the Colorado Youth Outdoors education wing.

Weld County 4-H

“Our partnership with Noble enables us to celebrate the youth who are excelling in 4-H programs and leadership. In addition, we are able to recognize the leaders who make such differences in our members lives. Whether a volunteer has given 5 years or 45 years, we want them to know that we appreciate their dedication,” said Teresa Johnson, events coordinator for Weld County 4-H. “Noble’s willingness to help us recognize these outstanding individuals strengthens our program and allows for us to continue offering opportunities to our members.”

Weld County 4-H teaches youth life skills through projects, record keeping, and public speaking. Youth can participate in contests, judging teams, attend camps and conferences, and apply for college scholarships. Noble has partnered with Weld County 4-H over the years by sponsoring the annual gala which recognizes more than 900 Weld County 4-H youth, 30 clubs, and 300 leaders as well as the Weld County Junior Livestock Sale.

The Weld County Junior Livestock Sale is an annual event held at the culmination of the Weld County Fair. The top 245 animals nominated for the sale are eligible for the sale, including all Grand and Reserve Grand Champions in each of the seven species. Noble joins this exciting program by giving an “add-on,” which is money added onto the sale of any animal in addition to what the buyer has bid.

Tennyson Center for Children

Noble Energy is a long-time supporter of the Tennyson Center in Denver, which serves children who are survivors of severe abuse or neglect, or who have significant mental health or developmental issues. The Center provides residential and therapeutic services, as well as a K-12 school.

Since 2017, Noble has supported and helped expand Tennyson’s services to Weld County. As a result, hundreds of children received services closer to home. Because of these expanded services, their lives were not disrupted by a change in school, and most did not have to leave their home.
