Grant Seekers

Contributions Guidelines

Who is Eligible

The grant seeker must be a 501(c) charitable organization, political subdivision, accredited school, or an international equivalent.

When to Apply

Charitable Investments applications are accepted between April 1 and July 31 for the following year’s funding consideration.

What is Required

Information required in the proposal will include an executive summary outlining the purpose of the program or project, details on how it will be accomplished, expected results, a budget (noting administrative expenses such as salaries and fees, program expenses and total income.)

A substantial percentage of our charitable giving is focused on our two signature programs – water biodiversity stewardship and math education. We recognize, however, that a community may also have unique needs beyond these strategic causes. To address these vital needs, local contributions are available to support other education, health and safety, natural resource, arts, civic, social services and disaster relief programs.

Proposals are evaluated based on alignment with Signature Program long-term goals, metrics and outcomes, innovativeness, collaboration with other entities, proximity to ConocoPhillips areas of operation, and employee and stakeholder engagement.
