Employee Volunteerism

At ConocoPhillips, volunteerism is an important facet of our overall corporate citizenship program. Embedded in the SPIRIT of ConocoPhillips' core values is a strong commitment to building a legacy of trust and enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which we live and operate.

In May 2011, in response to the call of Tanggu Binhai Charity Forum to help children with autism, volunteers in Tanggu painted cartoon t-shirts and held a charity sale for Tianjin Dream Factory and Liu’s Institute of Child Development. 39 t-shirts were painted by 55 volunteers, including participants from the Binhai Forum, and RMB 2200 was raised. On May 27th, just before Children’s Day in China, volunteers bought stationery and other necessities, which they delivered to the two autism centers.

In 2012 and 2013, COPC volunteers raised RMB 255,729 (US$41,200) to help Xiangyu Autism Children’s Home through auction and charity sale. The Xiangyu Home is the first and only non-profit organization which provides care and support to autistic children in Tanggu. The COPC funds help the Home offset nursery fees and cover salary and expensive training costs for the teachers.
