Oklahoma Natural Gas management and employees have a strong sense of duty to the communities they serve and lend a helping hand in many ways.
Oklahoma Natural Gas and ONE Gas support charitable organizations through cash donations, sponsorships and grants, such as those given annually to public school foundations in our service territory. In addition to monetary support that improves services and builds capacity for impact, Oklahoma Natural Gas employees engage in volunteer projects, supporting countless charitable organizations and events. Company executives and employees also serve on boards and committees for many nonprofits.
It is all part of our ongoing commitment to make our communities better places to live. We're helping make a difference through our employees, and through financial assistance, through special community programs and events that enrich the lives of all Oklahomans.

Oklahoma Natural Gas Volunteers
This program provides a structure that allows Oklahoma Natural Gas employees to organize and select the volunteer projects that are important to them. Employees form committees to approve requests and maintain a volunteer event calendar, communicate details about volunteer opportunities, and recognize volunteers for their efforts in the community.
Oklahoma Natural Gas employees support their communities through their individual contributions to United Way and other social and civic organizations.
Public School Funding Program
To enhance our philanthropic efforts in the education sector, the ONE Gas Foundation has allocated funds for classroom-based grants in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas from January through April of 2020.
These funds are specifically dedicated for our partnership with DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization that operates a website where teachers can request public support for classroom projects by posting grant applications.
