Corporate Giving

The Questar Companies Giving Mission and Guidelines


Questar Corporation's program of giving focuses on promoting a healthy environment by investing in and fulfilling its corporate responsibility to support the well-being of communities where Questar and its subsidiaries conduct business. Questar extends financial support in the areas of health and human services, education, culture and the arts and civic and community services.


Please submit funding requests in writing via email or hard copy. Questar will consider proposals that include a brief cover letter (1 page) and a concise proposal (2-4 pages) providing information specified below. In general, personal interviews will not be considered until a written proposal has been received. The six-member giving committee will then consider whether a personal interview and additional information is necessary. Please note a response may take as long as six to eight weeks.

A written proposal should include the following:

  • Name and address of organization
  • Contact person, title, telephone number and email address
  • IRS tax designation 501 (c) (3) letter establishing nonprofit status
  • IRS Form 990
  • Mission of organization including geographic area and target population served
  • Specific dollar amount requested
  • Description of program or activities and how funds will be used
  • Objectives, timetable and evaluation/follow-up
  • Current list of funders and amounts
  • Names and affiliations of current board members

Questar does not usually contribute to:

  • Organizations that are not designated 501 (c) (3) nonprofits
  • Organizations who cannot provide their Form 990
  • Organizations with a financial deficit or which cannot provide adequate accounting records or procedures
  • Organizations not geographically located within Questar's service area
  • Individuals
  • Primary or secondary schools as well as associated student clubs
  • Student or other group trips and exhibitions
  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Political, fraternal or labor organizations
  • Individual Boy Scout or Girl Scout troops
  • Athletic teams or sporting events, including golf tournaments
  • Courtesy advertising
  • Film and video production
  • Operating expenses for colleges and universities
  • Organizations that are fully participating members of United Way
  • Organizations deriving major support from government funding (federal, state or local)

An approved contribution for the current year does not indicate continued support the following year. Questar generally does not make multi-year pledges.
