We Serve and Support Our Communities


Denbury actively and enthusiastically supports community-based programs and organizations that address educational, cultural and social issues—improving the quality of life in the areas where we work and live. Our commitment includes financial contributions as well as coordination and support of volunteer services by our employees. Our employees are encouraged to give generously to charitable organizations of their choosing, with Denbury providing a matching contribution to support their efforts. Together, we have made a difference in our communities through contributions to numerous local charities and organizations.

Charitable Contributions Committee

Our Charitable Contributions Committee is comprised of employees from various departments throughout the Company working together to determine the best use of our resources to meet the needs of our communities. The committee was formed to supplement the Company’s other charitable contributions with a focus on contributing to organizations identified and supported by our employees. The committee meets monthly to distribute budgeted funds to select charitable organizations supported and nominated by Denbury employees. In addition, each of our field offices is allocated a specific charitable contribution budget so that they can give back to local organizations throughout the year.

Investing in our communities is not purely about monetary donations. In addition to financial contributions, Denbury is committed to encouraging and supporting our employees’ involvement in community service and philanthropic events and projects. To support our employees in their commitment to volunteer, we provide a paid day off from work to participate in service projects of their choosing. Additionally, Denbury coordinates group participation in fundraising and service projects that our employees are passionate about.

You will find Denbury faces helping all over our communities

Denbury employees volunteer and participate each year in the annual Dallas Children’s Health Holiday Parade and the Red Balloon Run and Ride supporting the Children’s Medical Center Foundation.

Denbury’s legal group volunteered at a local food bank in Plano, Texas, Minnie’s Food Pantry.

Habitat for Humanity is one of Denbury’s various efforts in which our employees volunteer their time and energy to help build homes in our communities.

It is because of organizations like Denbury, we are able to support our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Blood Donations

Denbury organizes and encourages employees to give blood on-site. Giving blood is also a way for donors to gain access to vital information about their own health. A free mini-physical is given at the time of donation, which includes a screening of blood pressure, temperature, iron level and cholesterol level.
