Giving Back: DCP Midstream Announces Charity Partnership with Wounded Warrior Project
DENVER, July 2, 2020 –DCP Midstream (DCP) is proud to honor our nation’s 18 million plus veterans this Independence Day, by announcing a multi-year, investment and engagement partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).
DCP employees nominated and selected WWP as the company’s new major national charitable partner in an employee vote. Company and employee efforts will increase awareness of WWP’s life-changing programs in DCP Midstream’s nine state footprint and are expected raise over one million dollars for WWP during a three-year period. The company’s donation and fundraising efforts will provide resources for WWP programming that supports warriors and their families in their time of greatest emotional and financial need. DCP is kicking off the partnership by helping to raise funds and write notes of support to include in WWP backpacks that are filled with comfort items delivered to the hospital bedsides of injured service members.
“As our nation celebrates Independence Day and the freedoms many brave men and women across generations have upheld, I am proud to announce our multi-year partnership with Wounded Warrior Project,” shared Wouter van Kempen, chairman, president, and CEO of DCP Midstream. “Our employees, many of whom are veterans, chose to make an impact with Wounded Warrior Project because their mission to support warriors is invaluable to our nation and communities.
“This partnership speaks volumes to the character and commitment of DCP Midstream’s employees, who’ve made their passion for supporting injured veterans and their families clear,” said WWP Chief Development Officer Gary Corless. “Together, we’ll empower numerous warriors to begin their next mission.”
DCP’s support will help the WWP serve more than180,000 warriors and family support members in all 50 states and across the world. Warriors never pay a penny for Wounded Warrior Project programs – because they paid their dues on the battlefield. Wounded Warrior Project’s free services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care change lives.

Since 2007, company, employee and partner efforts have helped raise and direct over $10 million to charity organizations in the communities DCP operates.
