Venoco is a strong believer in corporate philanthropy. Employees volunteer their time and the company donates millions of dollars to a variety of organizations that provide programs and services for people in need.
Venoco is a founding member of the Business Giving Roundtable (BGR) in Santa Barbara County, California. BGR was formed to engage businesses in the process of giving and resource sharing as part of a community-wide approach to business development and corporate citizenship. Venoco, along with other members of BGR in Santa Barbara County are demonstrating that business can do well by doing good.
