Thank you for your interest in supporting the Well Done Foundation (WDF). Our mission is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the USA by plugging orphaned and abandoned oil and gas wells.
There are 3.5 million orphaned (no owner) and abandoned oil wells in the USA that emit more than 8 million metric tons of CO2.
THERE IS HOPE.
How much can plugging just one orphaned well help?
It’s the annual equivalent of reducing methane from:
- Taking 3,115 gas-powered cars off the road
- Removing 605,999 trash bags in a landfill
- Charging 1,702,997,048 smartphones
Money donated to further the WDF’s mission is a direct, efficient, and completely transparent way to fight climate change—which is why so many individuals, companies, and organizations have chosen to support our efforts.
