Other local involvement in Alaska

As a company with deep roots in Alaska, we view civic involvement as a responsibility and an essential component of building strong and healthy communities.

ExxonMobil contributes to civic programs across the state of Alaska, including support to native communities, urban food programs, education and more. Partners include the Alaska Native Justice Center, the Tanana Chiefs Council, the Alaska Sea Life Center, the American Red Cross of Alaska, the Alaska Community Foundation, the Alaska Zoo and the Alaska Veterans Organization for Women (AVOW).

Cultural and historical investments


The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, an Alaskan tradition since 1973, is known as “The Last Great Race on Earth.” Covering more than 1,000 miles of jagged terrain – including mountain ranges, frozen rivers, dense forests, desolate tundra and windswept coast – the Iditarod serves up some of the fiercest physical challenges of any competitive sporting event.

ExxonMobil has been a proud supporter of the Iditarod since 1978. Over the years, we have continued to expand our relationship with the Iditarod. We are particularly proud of our support for the Iditarod Education Program.
