WPX cares about supporting worthy causes.

Because we care

We knew if we could partner with the right early education institution, WPX would make a measureable impact. Hawthorne Elementary in Tulsa has vast potential, great needs and a new, strong leader interested in making big improvements. To address Hawthorne’s most immediate need, literacy, WPX funded more than 100 books of interest for each classroom. We developed a mentoring program that sends more than 40 mentors to Hawthorne weekly to meet with selected students in kindergarten, first and second grade. Additionally, we leverage various non-profit organizations throughout the community to visit Hawthorne and share their programs: Tulsa Ballet, Signature Symphony and Tulsa Geosciences Center recently brought educational enrichment opportunities to students.


Matching Gifts

The WPX Matching Gifts program doubles contributions to eligible 501(c)3 organizations. WPX matches contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 per employee, and up to $5,000 per retiree, per calendar year.

WPX is in-sourcing matching gifts again starting in  2018. A PDF form to submit requests will be available for retirees prior to the end of the first quarter. For assistance, please contact WPX Community Affairs.
