ExxonMobil giving guidelines

ExxonMobil's contributions programs, whether conducted through the U.S.-based ExxonMobil Foundation, or through the corporation or international affiliated companies' operations, are in place to help address important community needs.

We believe that well-designed contributions programs contribute to society by raising the standards of living and the stability of the communities in which we live and do business. They also align with our pledge of good corporate citizenship and contribute to ExxonMobil being the partner, neighbor, employer and supplier of choice around the world.

Typically, ExxonMobil chooses to work with community organizations with which we have established or proactively developed relationships. ExxonMobil does not seek and rarely funds unsolicited grant applications and project proposals.

The ExxonMobil Public and Government Affairs Department is responsible for maintaining policies, programs and procedures to administer our contributions program.

Contributions are voluntary donations of cash or goods and services made to organizations for which the donor receives nothing significant or tangible in return. The contributions program and budget are not used to promote product sales or brand recognition.

While we generally prefer to invest in local communities where we have a strong presence, we also fund some organizations that operate across a nation or around the globe.
