XTO Energy announced their commitment to the Bakken in sponsorship of a program called “Give Back to the Bakken,” which provides grants to area nonprofit organizations in North Dakota and Montana. Past recipients of grants include Home on the Range and Best Friends Mentoring.
The grants, says XTO Energy, is a show of appreciation for the communities in eastern Montana and western North Dakota who have welcomed the company and its employees into their communities.
The two grants will be awarded to organizations that are meeting a demonstrated need for communities in the Bakken. Grant requests are due on October 31.
