Partner Profile: SM Energy

SM Energy is an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids in onshore North America.  SM Energy is also an incredible supporter of Junior Achievement and the students in our community who aspire to achieve the American Dream.

Over the past seven years, 50 SM Energy employees have volunteered in 101 classrooms, impacting over 2,300 students through JA in a Day JA Job Shadow. The company also participates in the JA Bowl-A-Thon, and has raised nearly $145,000 in the past four years to bring JA programs to over 7,200 young people!

SM Energy provides generous financial support to several JA programs, and most recently became a sponsor of JA’s newest program for middle and high school students, JA Finance Park, presented by Great-West Great-Teachers. JA Finance Park teaches young people the basics of personal finance through a fun, interactive simulation that mimics being an “adult for a day.” SM Energy’s logo is positioned above the rocky mountain mural in JA Finance Park, reminding students that the company is “fueling big dreams for America’s future!”
