We continue to support causes important to our employees with a Matching Gifts program. Matching our employee contributions dollar-for-dollar enables them to double their donations to their favorite charities and shows our support of their cause.
In 2015, we matched nearly $166,000 in donations to 199 organizations. We also kicked off a matching program for our Political Action Committee… encouraging our employees to participate in the political process. This new campaign matched over $28,000 to additional charities supported by our employees.
Newfield matches donations dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 per person annually. Topping the chart with the highest matched donations in 2015 were the American Heart Association, Tulsa Advocates for the Protection of Children, Big Brothers Big Sisters, YMCA of Greater Houston, Colorado School of Mines and the Wounded Warrior Project.
