Philanthropy, giving back and volunteering are part of our culture and business strategy. This approach, which we call Social Energy, is coordinated to maximize impact across our focus areas – education, well-being, emergency response, clean air and water, family focus and support of military service members – while incorporating local needs. Social Energy includes company-funded charitable contributions, coordination and encouragement of employee volunteering, and matching gifts for SWN employees’ own charitable giving. We leverage team members’ passion to serve by coordinating donations and volunteering efforts. For example, we match SWN leaders with the boards of local nonprofits to extend the benefits of our financial contributions. We also match employee donations to eligible charities of their choosing up to $15,000 per year.1 In 2020, SWN employees were not able to participate as in-person volunteers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, SWN had zero volunteer hours in 2020.
