Metropolitan D.C. Charities Receive $2.7 Million from ExxonMobil Employee Giving Program

Annual Program Raises Record Amount for Local Community Organizations

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ExxonMobil announced today that its employees in the Metropolitan D.C. area raised more than $2.7 million for local community and charitable organizations during the 2009 Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign. The amount is a record level for the campaign, which has raised nearly $16 million for organizations in the Metropolitan D.C. area since 2002.

"Our employees feel honored to give back to their communities," said John MacFarlane, chair of the 2009 ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign. "With 99 percent participation by our area employees, we are proud to continue the ExxonMobil tradition of giving."

This year, employees donated to over 500 charities with nearly half qualifying for ExxonMobil's charitable matching program. As a result, 230 local non-profit organizations providing health and human services will receive contributions from ExxonMobil in addition to the individual donations made by employees.

ExxonMobil has a long history of supporting community groups and educational organizations in the greater Washington D.C. area, not only with contributions and grants, but also with thousands of employees and retirees who volunteer their time and talent.
