In the Community to Serve
Great Plains Natural Gas firmly believes in contributing to the support of the communities we serve. This takes the form of conservation education, employee volunteerism and corporate giving. Our employees support many civic and charitable organizations.
Environmental Community Opportunity (ECO) Fund
Environmental stewardship is a part of Great Plains Natural Gas’ mission and daily life, and our commitment to the communities we serve is taken seriously. As part of our continued environmental commitment, Great Plains Natural Gas – along with its three sister companies – has established the ECO Fund to support projects that enhance environmental education and stewardship in the communities we serve.
Environmental education projects may include grants for teacher training, books or equipment for classroom use, field trips or special project support in the natural or physical sciences.
Community environmental stewardship projects may include such things as nature trail development, wildlife area enhancement, recycling and community cleanup promotion, or the development of ‘living laboratories’ for the use of students and the general public.
Our corporate headquarters, MDU Resources Group, is committed to supporting the communities in which its businesses operate. The corporation believes its success is directly related to a healthy social and economic environment. Through the MDU Resources Foundation, the corporation can share its success and help its neighbors make the communities better places to live and work. The foundation was incorporated in 1983. MDU Resources is proud of its record of supporting qualified organizations and is hopeful the foundation’s efforts will continue to have a positive impact.For more information regarding the MDU Resources Foundation, contact Rita O’Neill at MDU Resources.
