Community Investments

SM Energy is committed to investing in the communities where we live, work and operate, and developing strong partnerships with organizations and neighbors to help understand their needs. Our employees are encouraged to devote a meaningful amount of their time and talent volunteering and building positive relationships in their communities.

In addition to the corporate and regional charitable giving programs, we match our employees’ personal monetary contributions to qualified organizations. We are proud to have so many outstanding employees investing their time, talent and financial resources in their communities.

Our approach is to thoughtfully and purposefully invest in the following areas:


We support kindergarten through 12th grade education programs that focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) while encouraging students to pursue higher education.

Civic and Community Service

We are responsive to the needs of our communities and invest in civic and community organizations that serve critical social needs and enhance social and economic conditions.

Health and Human Services

We support organizations and programs that focus on community health and wellness, and place special emphasis on family wellness initiatives and occupational health programs.
