Community

Serving our Community

The Permian Basin isn’t just where we work. It’s where we live. We love it here—and we are working to make it even better. We regularly support projects that contribute to the long-term growth of the Permian Basin and provide our citizens with the services and facilities needed for an exceptional quality of life.

We give to a wide-array of non-profit entities that are important to our employees, Concho and the greater community. To date, Concho has invested approximately $24 million in Permian Basin communities.

Our support primarily goes to three key areas: Cultural Institutions, Educational and Community Facilities, and Health & Human Services Organizations. It is our hope that investing in these facilities and organizations improves our community for all to benefit and will help us attract, retain and develop talent.

Concho encourages employees to get involved and make a difference in our community. Our officers and employees serve on numerous community boards and volunteer at organizations throughout Texas and New Mexico. We provide opportunities for employees to get involved by hosting numerous fundraisers and company-sponsored volunteer experiences.

Concho is also proud to play a leading role in the Permian Strategic Partnership (PSP), a coalition of energy companies and regional leaders, working together to invest in the communities in the Permian Basin. Our shared goal is to contribute to improving the quality of life in the region by working to make roads safer, improve education, address healthcare and housing needs and train workers.
