Cabot has a strong commitment to the communities where we operate and an even stronger commitment to doing what we can to improve the quality of life in those areas. Since beginning operations in the Marcellus Shale in Susquehanna County in 2006, we have invested more than $2 billion in the region, constructed and staffed an office building in Montrose, Pennsylvania and created more than 400 jobs in the county. We are heavily invested in the community and the quality of life of not only our employees, but our neighbors. We participate in and support our communities with not only our tax revenue and economic contributions, but charitable donations, community education and outreach, and volunteerism.
Since 2010, Cabot has directly invested over $2.5 million back into the community through non-profit organizations, educational scholarships and community events. Our areas of focus include:
Together with the community, the Cabot/EMHS Community Match Fund raised $4.4 million in just four months to help fund the construction of a new hospital in Montrose, Pa. The new Endless Mountains Hospital is scheduled to begin accepting patients in October.
$200,000 in scholarships made available to high school, vocational schools & college students to help further their education. Cabot also partners with Junior Achievement and directly with educational institutions to ensure that curriculum is in place for students who wish to have a career in the natural gas industry.
A $100,000 grant has been established for first responders to upgrade equipment and improve operations capabilities. Money awarded so far has gone to upgrade communications capabilities through new radio systems and to purchase emergency rope gear.
Strong partnerships have been forged with numerous community & historical organizations including the American Red Cross, The Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust, the United Way, Susquehanna & Wyoming County Interfaith, TREHAB, True Friends Animal Welfare Center, Scranton School for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children, and the Make-A-Wish Foundations.
