Through outreach programs, scholarships and education opportunities, and environmental stewardship programs, we strive to help our neighbors make our communities better places to live, work and raise a family. The Foundation is supported by revenues from the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, as well as donations from the Petroleum Council, the Foundation’s Board of Directors, industry companies and employees, grants from the Oil and Gas Research Council and Outdoor Heritage Fund and others.
