Metropolitan D.C. Charities Receive $2.8 Million from ExxonMobil Employee Giving Program.

Annual Program Raises Record Amount for Local Community Organizations

FAIRFAX, Va. -- ExxonMobil's employees in the Metropolitan D.C. area raised more than $2.8 million for local community and charitable organizations during the 2010 Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign. The amount is another record level for the campaign, eclipsing last year's record-setting amount of $2.7 million. The campaign has raised nearly $19 million for organizations in the Metropolitan D.C. area since 2002.

"This is a significant achievement, especially in these tough economic times when funding for many worthy organizations has declined while demand for their services has increased," said Debra King, chair of the 2010 ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign. "Once again, our employees have continued their proud tradition of giving in the communities where we live and work."

This year, employees donated to over 500 charities with nearly half qualifying for ExxonMobil's charitable matching program. As a result, 233 local non-profit organizations providing health and human services Noun 1.

 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.

Organizations receiving both individual employee and corporate matching contributions include:
