Overview

ExxonMobil employees, retirees and families have a long history of giving back to those who are less fortunate in our communities. We share a proud tradition of consistently contributing our time and resources to help others. The strong need in North Texas for emergency aid, health services and care for children and the elderly calls us to continue our tradition.

Through the 2019 Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign, the ExxonMobil family contributed nearly $1.9 million to benefit more than 160 local charitable organizations offering a wide range of social and educational services. In addition, over 100 employee and retiree volunteers provided more than 350 hours of service to assist charities through our Week of Action activities.

We invite you to join ExxonMobil in supporting our North Texas community through the 2020 Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign (EFCC).

In this campaign, 100% of your gift goes directly to the charities of your choice. Your giving may also be multiplied through the corporate contribution, which is allocated across qualified charities based on total giving.

Please complete and return the pledge card as soon as possible. It must be postmarked no later than November 1, 2020 to impact the corporate contribution.

The following documents and details provide information regarding available methods to contribute financially.

With the launch of the Employees’ Favorite Charities Campaign, ExxonMobil has organized a volunteer food drive to support the North Texas Food Bank. You can participate in the “virtual” food drive by clicking on this link that will direct you to the “Wish List” on Amazon. We hope you will join us!

Key elements of EFCC

Choice of Charities

U.S. charities eligible to receive employee/retiree gifts must satisfy the following conditions:

  • Nonprofit organization having 501(c)(3) status, as determined by the IRS;
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN) required;
  • Screened against State Department and Treasury Watch lists; and,
  • Located in Dallas, Denton, Collin, Tarrant, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall, Ellis, Johnson or Van Zandt counties.

Exceptions:

  • Local educational institutions that are eligible for the ExxonMobil Educational Matching Gift Program are not currently eligible for EFCC.
  • Employees and retirees can choose up to six charities from a prescreened list (enclosed) or write in charities that will then be vetted for eligibility to receive a portion of the corporate contribution.

ExxonMobil Contribution

The ExxonMobil corporate contribution will be allocated among eligible charities meeting the following criteria, based on the percentage of employee and retiree pledges:

  • Focus on local health and human service needs (such as family needs, child care, youth services, elder care and more); and,
  • Receive a minimum of $1,000 in collective contributions from employees/retirees.
  • Examples of organizations excluded from receiving a portion of the corporate contribution include: houses of worship, educational institutions covered by corporate matching gift programs, environmental organizations and animal service organizations (except those related to human services – e.g., training of guide dogs).

All charities on the prescreened list will be eligible to share in the corporate contribution if the $1,000 threshold is met.

Distribution of Funds

  • After ExxonMobil and America’s Charities have reviewed and confirmed the accuracy of pledges and provided advance notice to the organizations, distribution will be made to organizations by method directed by employees and retirees (e.g., payroll deduction, check, stock transfer).
  • For questions about the fund-distribution process or timeline, please contact Truman T. Bell, Headquarters Community Relations Manager.
