Nexen's Alan O'Brien at the 2015 United Way Campaign Cook-Off.

Maximizing Employee Contributions

Nexen supports employee contributions to charitable and not-for-profit organizations that meet our corporate matching gift guidelines up to a maximum of $20,000 per individual in Canada and the United States, or £12,500 in the UK, in any one calendar year.

In 2015, employees in Canada, the U.S. and UK had $1.3 million in charitable contributions matched by Nexen dollar-for-dollar.

Nexen holds annual United Way campaigns in our offices and operations in Calgary and Fort McMurray.

United Way campaigns are the single largest beneficiary of funding on an annual basis through Nexen’s Matching program. Together, Nexen and our employees raised over $1 million in 2015 for community-based United Way campaigns in Calgary and Fort McMurray. Nexen was honoured by United Way of Calgary in 2014 with an Award of Excellence, recognizing our outstanding fundraising campaigns that resulted in an average employee participation rate of 57.3% from 2011 to 2013.
