Community Partners

communitySanta Barbara County boasts a healthy offering of non-profit services.  These vital organizations provide an array of high quality, full spectrum programs aimed at meeting the demands of those in need.  

Although each organization touts a different mission statement, their end goal is always the same:  improve the lives of all they serve.  This can be seen from Santa Barbara County Foodbank’s commitment to feeding the hungry, the United Boys & Girls Club’s stellar afterschool programs and Legal Aid’s pro bono services to those who cannot afford legal representation.

ERG’s success in revitalizing longstanding oil and gas reserves has allowed the company to establish a strategic giving program, and “give forward” to local causes aimed at producing lasting and impactful results in the community.

ERG’s commitment to Giving Forward Program was aimed at creating partnerships with organizations meeting our giving guidelines.  We then collaborate to leverage investment for its highest and greatest impact.


We are proud to be part of a family of community partners.  We applaud all they do to improve the lives of those they serve:

Partner Spotlight

SYV Fruit & Vegetable Rescue


Impressed with their limited resources, but exceptional outcomes, ERG wanted to partner by helping fund the process of gleaning farmers markets, businesses, farms their unwanted produce. This food is then delivered to the schools and charities throughout Santa Barbara County. This effort helps feed the needy and offers nutrional, organic food for our school age children.

SYV Fruit & Vegetable Rescue redirects or "gleans" local produce from farms, farmers markets, home gardens, and orchards. This produce is then delivered and to charitable organizations and school lunch programs in Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez and Santa Maria. All at no charge. This helps these groups stretch their food budgets as well as providing the food they serve that is healthier and tastes better.
