In 2007, Ohio’s oil and gas industry and OOGEEP created a special Foundation for the exclusive purpose of providing continued educational opportunities throughout Ohio. The primary role of the Foundation is to provide scholarships to qualified applicants. To date, hundreds of scholarships have been awarded to students representing all corners of the state.

These scholarship winners are the future of our industry. Your donation allows these young men and women to achieve their energy career goals, and helps to build the next generation who will explore, develop and produce Ohio’s energy resources.  Click here to learn more about these careers and qualified Ohio colleges, universities, careers centers and technical schools that provide these educational and training opportunities.

Please consider a donation to the Foundation in your legacy planning, in memory of, or as a tax deductible year end charitable donation. The Foundation is a 501(C)(3) tax exempt charitable organization.
