Chevron is committed to being a strong corporate citizen and partner and believes that their business success directly correlates to the value they create, including the value they create in the communities enabling our success. To support their efforts, Chevron has established the Chevron Community Fund at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.

The Chevron Community Fund was created by the Chevron Appalachian Michigan Business Unit to direct philanthropic resources to the needs of the communities where the company operates. Specifically, it will support the leaders within those communities who are creating opportunities for citizens. There are talented, dedicated leaders in schools, nonprofits, and community organizations without enough support to make a difference through their work. The Chevron Community Fund was created so that Chevron Community’s resources can serve these community leaders.

Funding for the current round is focused primarily on STEM Education and Workforce Development. Project involving Basic Human Needs may also be considered.
