Since inception nearly forty years ago, giving back to the community has been a core tenet of the Parent Petroleum organization. In 2018, those philanthropic endeavors were formalized with the launch of the Parent Petroleum Foundation, a 501(c)(3), in honor of its founder, Peter A. Spina.
The foundation’s creation was centered around a mission-driven focus to positively impact the community by funding advancements in health, human services, and education. Each year, the company and foundation host a charitable golf outing, its largest annual fundraiser, by bringing together its customers, vendors, and partners from all lines of business to raise awareness and financial resources for non-profit organizations that align with the pillars of the foundation – health, human services, and education.
This year proudly marks the 25th anniversary of the Parent Petroleum Golf Classic, reinforcing the organization’s commitment to enhancing the lives of others through its mission-driven work. In order to maximize the foundation’s impact to the community, Parent Petroleum covers all expenses associated with the event, affording the foundation the ability to donate one hundred percent of the funds raised. Most recently, the foundation’s support has directly impacted CASA Kane County, Chicago Blackhawks Foundation, Folds of Honor, and LivingWell Cancer Resource Center.

Parent Petroleum and the Parent Petroleum Foundation work together to support local charities in an effort to fund advancements in health, human services, and education. Each year, they partner with their customers, local gas stations, to sponsor a Pump-A-Thon event, all with the goal of giving back to the community. With every gallon of gas purchased in the month of August, each participating fuel retailer donates a portion of their sales to the Parent Petroleum Foundation, directly supporting four great charities. One hundred percent of all funds raised are donated to Folds of Honor, LivingWell Cancer Resource Center, CASA Kane County and the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation. Be on the lookout for the Parent Petroleum Foundation Pump-a-Thon signage at a participating gas station near you!
We would like to thank our premier sponsors of this year’s Golf Classic: Amoco bp, Anderson Pump Service, BMO Harris Bank, Castrol, ESPN Radio 1000, and Prairie State Gaming.
