Since 1993, Ziff Energy has been a supporter of “Imagine”, a corporate program whereby
companies commit to donate at least 1% of revenue to charities and social programs.
Since 1994, Ziff Energy has exceeded this commitment level.
In honour of its 10th anniversary in 1992, and annually since, Ziff Energy has funded
a $1,000 bursary for a student in the Faculty of Social Sciences with a major in
Economics. The Award is based on academic merit and financial need. In 1999, the
bursary was named in recognition of G. Gordon Clarke’s significant contributions
to both the Canadian E & P industry and to Ziff Energy Group. Gordon was responsible
for the creation of Ziff Energy’s "Reducing Field Operating Costs" Benchmarking study in 1994.
In honour of our 15th year in business, the firm established a bursary in the Engineering
Faculty of the University of Calgary, one of the leading engineering faculties in
North America, and a major contributor to Canada’s petroleum industry talent and
research over the years. This bursary recognizes the contributions to the Canadian gas industry of Jack A.
Sandercock, a long time Senior Associate of Ziff Energy. The bursary will be awarded
to a second year student, who demonstrates academic achievement in engineering subjects,
participates in extra-curricular activities, and who requires
financial assistance to pursue university studies.
Recognizing the importance of education to the energy industry, Ziff Energy Group
established the Tom J. Clay Bursary at Mount Royal College in 1997. This annual
award will be given to a full time student in the Business Administration Program,
with a career interest in the petroleum industry, academic proficiency and financial
