Connected To Our Communities
At LINN Energy, we are connected to our communities. We are dedicated to working in harmony with our neighbors and place a high priority on improving the lives of people in the communities where our employees live and work. Our charitable giving is focused on four key areas: health, education, community services and the arts. LINN employees tirelessly dedicate themselves to worthy causes through generous support and countless volunteer hours.
LINN employees are passionate about serving our communities. Through a combination of employee donations and a dollar-for-dollar company match, we raised almost $200,000 for United Way in 2011.
LINN is a strong supporter of Habitat for Humanity. In Houston, Oklahoma City and many of our operating areas, our employees grab their hammers and nail guns to partner with Habitat to build dreams come true for families – homes to call their own.
