Supporting First Responders
The Plains First Responder Grant Program funds the resource and training needs of nonprofit emergency response and public safety organizations in the communities where Plains operates. We supply funds for improvements that will have a lasting, measurable impact, and a direct benefit to the safety or preparedness of response organizations. The grant program is one way for Plains to further empower the men and women who risk their lives daily for their communities.
As of July 2020, Plains and its subsidiaries have provided more than $2.6 million in grants to first responders in close proximity to our pipelines and facilities. The Plains First Responder Grant Program application and giving guidelines are available here.
In addition to our corporate donations, we make local charitable contributions and participate in volunteer opportunities in the communities where we operate across the U.S. and Canada.
