ExxonMobil Foundation overview The ExxonMobil Foundation is the primary philanthropic arm of the Exxon Mobil Corporation in the United States. Founded in 1955 as Esso Education Foundation, the Foundation’s name was changed to ExxonMobil Foundation in 2000 following the merger of Exxon Corporation and Mobil Corporation. The Foundation has a strategic focus supporting math and science education, for promoting women as catalysts for economic development and ending deaths from malaria. In 2014, together with its employees and retirees, Exxon Mobil Corporation, its divisions and affiliates, and the ExxonMobil Foundation provided $279 million in contributions worldwide, of which almost $100 million was dedicated to education. ExxonMobil Foundation focus areas The ExxonMobil Foundation seeks to have a meaningful impact by focusing the majority of its spending on creating economic opportunities for women, math and science education and malaria. Malaria The ExxonMobil Foundation supports programs targeted to worldwide health issues, specifically malaria, because it believes that good health is a springboard to opportunity, achievement and development. Malaria is preventable, treatable and curable, and thanks to better awareness, prevention and treatment tools, global malaria deaths have dropped more than 60 percent since 2000. The ExxonMobil Foundation supports a wide range of prevention, treatment and advocacy programs to end deaths from malaria. Learn more. Math and science Globally, a strong emphasis on education empowers communities and builds the foundation for human progress. The ExxonMobil Foundation focuses on math and science education because they are — and will increasingly be — the universal languages of the global workplace and are critical tools for success in today’s high-tech world.
