Community-first leadership began with Forrest and Charlotte. Today, that legacy has shaped our culture and direction and all that we do. We are grateful to have the ability to support numerous organizations and programs that are local to where our employees, and our families, live and work. Our mission - an unwavering commitment to creating superior solutions to solve everyday problems - is not only a statement about the products we make but also the impact we can have as a force for goodwill.

Shared Team Vision

Katie Lucas, Vice President of Strategy and Philanthropy, leads daily corporate social responsibility efforts, directs charitable programs, and serves as a steward of the Lucas legacy - a driving force for active civic duty and generosity.

Lucas Oil employees take giving back to heart and participate in team-supported volunteer and fundraising programs in their local communities. Although spread across three main locations in different cities, serving together is a core value at Lucas Oil. For some offices, that means supporting a local mission by providing meals or being an active Big Brother or Big Sister. For others, it's gathering emergency supplies following a natural disaster, answering phones as part of a Radiothon to raise money for a children's hospital, or building a new playground. And, collectively across all Lucas locations, gathering and distributing Christmas presents for less fortunate children - our team graciously supports causes and communities they care about.

Making an Impact Together

Lucas Oil is Focused on Serving Women and Children, Veterans and Local/Partner-Centric Programs

"We are grateful for our corporate partners who share the same commitment to improving the lives of those in our communities. Together we can make a positive difference and a more meaningful impact to those we serve."

-Katie Lucas, Vice President of Lucas Oil

Improving the Lives of Others

The annual Eric Medlen Memorial Charity Golf Tournament honors the late NHRA Funny Car driver Eric Medlen and all funds raised from the event are donated to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital (PMCH) at Ascension St. Vincent in Indianapolis. Every year the mission remains the same - honoring Eric's life and supporting the children at PMCH. The event has helped fund new facilities like the St. Vincent House, a pediatric MRI Suite, a teaching classroom, and a state-of-the-art pediatric neurology unit.
