Making a Difference

QEP’s commitment to our communities goes beyond being a good neighbor. We work with our stakeholders to create partnerships that have a positive and meaningful impact – making our communities a better place in which to live and work.

QEP believes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education is vital to our business and to our country’s ability to compete in the global economy. Since 2014, we have invested more than $3.6 million in STEM partnerships with school districts across our areas of operation. In Colorado, we partnered with Denver Public Schools and have contributed $344,500 to implement and expand Project Lead The Way (PLTW) programs, which empower K-12 students to engage in career explorations and to acquire not only technical STEM knowledge, but also transportable skills such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, and collaboration. Our employees are actively involved in the program, mentoring students and supporting teachers. Continuing our commitment to STEM education, QEP awards scholarships for students in energy-related fields at Colorado School of Mines and Western State Colorado University, and supports an engineering scholarship for a Denver Public Schools graduate through the Denver Scholarship Foundation.

We are also committed to improving the health and safety of our local communities. Our partnerships with the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association and Children’s Hospital Colorado provide disaster relief and emergency preparedness, help prevent heart disease and stroke, and provide critical pediatric treatment for children throughout the region.
