The Lake Charles LNG Charitable Donations Program has been developed to help the local community meet its priorities and needs. We work closely with organizations to identify opportunities that support and drive long-term value for the community.

To apply for funding, please see the following contribution guidelines:

Charitable Donation

A charitable donation from Lake Charles LNG is a one-time financial contribution. We do not provide for multi-year commitments.

Program Themes

Lake Charles LNG will consider charitable contributions to eligible non-profit or tax exempt organizations for select programs that support one or more of our chosen themes: Education, Environment, and/or Community Safety and Well-being


Projects will receive support only if there is a demonstrated benefit to communities in the Lake Charles area.

Eligibility Criteria

Lake Charles LNG supports a wide range of charitable organizations that are tax-exempt in the United States under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. However, we will not consider contributions for the following purposes:

  • Individuals
  • Private foundations
  • Non-profit organizations without a current 501(c)(3) exempt status
  • Conferences, workshops or seminars not directly related to Lake Charles LNG chosen themes
  • Religious organizations that do not serve the general public on a non-denominational basis

Please submit your proposal via Shell’s online grant form. If your request falls within our focused areas of contribution and meets our eligibility requirements, we will contact you within two weeks after your application has been submitted.

You must complete all required fields in order for your request to be considered. Your application should include a brief statement describing the mission of your organization, amount requested (including itemized budget information for funds on this specific project) and the purpose of the contribution.
