Through Dakota Gasification Company's parent company, Basin Electric, Charitable Giving Program donations are dispersed each year to charities in the nine-state service territory. The Charitable Giving Committee meets periodically to evaluate funding requests.
Basin Electric also donates surplus office equipment such as computers, desks and chairs for organizations in need. Our charitable contributions fall under four categories that are vital to the growth and development of every successful community:
- Community development and enrichment
- Health and human services
- Education and youth development
- Cultural and fine arts
A portion of Basin Electric's Charitable Giving funds are also allocated as matching funds for donations made by member systems in our service territory.
Giving back to the organizations that help keep our communities strong and growing is important to Basin Electric and its subsidiaries as they are crucial to our survival and success. Without these programs and services our communities would not thrive as they do. Financial contributions are important to helping every organization function and continually develop.
Dakota Gas, through Basin Electric's Charitable Giving Program, gives back in many ways supporting the communities in which we work and live.
