What is the Shell Foothills Legacy Fund?

Since beginning our Foothills business nearly 70 years ago, we’ve strived to leave a positive, lasting legacy in the communities where we operate.

Following the June 26, 2019 announcement that Shell has reached an agreement with Pieridae Energy Limited to purchase Shell’s Foothills Assets - Waterton, Jumping Pound and Caroline and the gas fields which feed them, and the Shantz Sulphur Forming Facility - we wish to announce the establishment of a $2 million legacy fund to honour the many decades of Shell’s proud involvement in the community.

The Fund has been created for the communities near these assets – places where we’ve been proud to live and work – to thank you for the support and trust you placed in our operations, and to help valued community partners with access to funding to continue delivering important services in local communities in the greater Foothills region. We’re pleased to share that we anticipate the funds will be fully allocated by the end of 2020 and encourage organizations to submit their applications by the August 31 or November 30, 2020 intake periods.
