Energy Editors/Business Editors

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 9, 2003

ExxonMobil is pleased to announce today that its employees and companies in the Metropolitan D.C. area have raised a record $1.6 million for non-profits during its recently concluded "Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign."

"We are extremely proud of our employees continued commitment to invest in the communities where we live and work," said Charlie Maguire, 2003 ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign Co-Chair, and Vice President of Engineering, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company. "Our employees understand the impact our support has on many local organizations during a critical time of need."

Employees personally contributed $1,181,270 to help support their favorite non-profit organizations. The ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign provided employees with the opportunity to give to any charity with 100% of their contribution going to their designated charity.

Exxon Mobil Corporation also provided a corporate contribution of $405,000 that will be distributed to 157 local health and human services non-profit organizations based on aggregate donations from employees. (Alphabetical listing of these organizations follows.)

The ExxonMobil family has a long history of supporting community groups and educational organizations in the greater Washington area, not only with contributions and grants to targeted organizations, but also with thousands of employees and retirees who volunteer their time and talent to local non-profits.
