Community and news

ExxonMobil devotes its energy to not only operating safely, but also to being an important part of the community. We strive to support the Beaumont area economy through community investments that spur local development and improve quality of life, particularly in the Charlton Pollard, South Park and Amelia neighborhoods.

Each year, we pay more than $50 million in local taxes, and are the largest contributor to educating Beaumont public schools. Our operations generate 1 out of 7 jobs in the Beaumont area.

Beaumont employees and retirees volunteered more than 14,000 hours in 2017 and contributed $235,000 in matching grants through the company’s Volunteer Involvement Program (VIP). Focus areas include science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and workforce development initiatives.

ExxonMobil and its employees donated more than $1 million to the United Way of Beaumont and North Jefferson in 2017 and the Beaumont complex is an active contributor.
