Newfield Foundation: Giving Back to Our Communities
In 2001, we formed the Newfield Foundation to play an important role in enhancing the quality of life in communities in which we are active. Newfield has contributed well over $17 million to the Foundation's endowment, which will allow us to fund future worthy causes into the future. The organizations receiving these allocations were selected by an employee committee. These included donations to community services; environmental foundations; health/welfare; and cultural arts.

Matching Gifts Program
Besides the Newfield Foundation, our employees can help their community through our Matching Gifts Program which began in 1998. The Company matches dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 of total annual contributions per participant. Some of the organizations receiving contributions include: Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater Houston, The American Red Cross, Oilfield Helping Hands, CO School of Mines, NE OK Food Bank, St Jude's Children's research.
