Meaningful Partnerships that Meet Immediate Needs


We believe all children deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential. Accordingly, we support programs that make high-quality, comprehensive, and meaningful educational opportunities available to all children, from early childhood through high school. We do not directly fund individual scholarships.

Environmental Causes

We support the conservation and restoration of ecosystems where we live and work. We do not fund programs, projects, or organizations to support lobbying or political activities.

Community Development

We invest in programs that make our communities stronger and more sustainable through civic engagement and economic and workforce development. We emphasize local business development, neighborhood revitalization, and civic / youth involvement.

Health and Human Services

Antero values the health and well-being of our employees and community members. We support programs and initiatives that focus on disease prevention, substance abuse, mental health, and basic needs such as food, shelter, and safety. We do not fund gifts directly to individuals

Arts & Culture

We seek to enrich our communities by expanding access to the arts. We focus on children's programs, community arts facilities, restoration/enhancement initiatives, and local performance groups. We do not, at this time, directly fund individual scholarships.

Antero Foundation Grants

Our philanthropic work focuses on programs that deliver lasting value to our local communities. Typically, awards will not be granted for more than three consecutive years. Grants requests exceeding $15,000 are subject to additional oversight.

  • We contribute solely to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or state or local governmental organizations formed exclusively for charitable purposes.
  • Programs and projects that benefit the areas and communities where Antero operates and where employees work and live (currently West Virginia and Ohio).
  • Organizations that focus on:
    • Education
    • Environment
    • Community Development
    • Health and Human Services
    • Arts and Culture
  • We support organizations whose mission and activities align with those of Antero and the Foundation. We do not support individuals, other private foundations, golf tournaments or beauty pageants, or programs located outside Antero's operational area. We also do not support organizations without 501(c)(3) status (including foreign organizations, political, lobbying or labor groups), most religious organizations, or organizations that discriminate against protected classes of individuals.

Grant requests may be submitted at any time by completing an online application. Deadlines vary according to the amount requested. To receive funding, all grant recipients must sign a grant agreement specifying the terms and conditions of the grant, the purpose of the grant, and the use of funding.

Jefferson Awards Program

Local Jefferson Award recipient and national nominee, Stephanie Hayhurst-Hall, was recognized for her public service, particularly as a children’s advocate. An adoptee herself, Stephanie is now an adoptive parent with husband, Jason, in Pennsboro, WV. Stephanie explains,

Stephanie Hayhurst-Hall

“Her story is so inspiring to us, not only because she’s our daughter, but because her story reflects a lot of the children who are in foster care, and their stories. When she came to us she was sad and broken, but once she got into our home and we could be a happy family, seeing her transition was just so inspirational to us. She is a healthy, happy seven year old and you would never know the trauma she experienced. We want to see that for all children in foster care so we continue to advocate because of her. She inspires us every day.”
Community service and volunteerism are what keep WV strong. Multiplying Good recognizes outstanding volunteers in local communities through the Jefferson Awards program. Antero Resources finds value in those who put their community first and we are proud to partner with WDTV 5 News to honor the unsung heroes of local WV communities. Nominate someone you know today.
