As regular volunteers for a wide variety of charitable organizations, employees share their time and talents through employee-driven, corporate-supported Volunteer Involvement Program grants. In 2017:
- the Joliet Refinery contributed more than $250K to the United Way of Will and Grundy Counties
- refinery employees volunteered more than 9,000 hours and contributed more than $150K to dozens of local organizations through Exxon Mobil Corporation’s Volunteer Involvement Program (VIP) grants
- ExxonMobil employees contributed $1.3M to Illinois colleges and universities including the Exxon Mobil Foundation Education Matching Grants
ExxonMobil also continues to help build a stable local economy. ExxonMobil Joliet contributes millions of dollars to the regional economy and is a stable employer, providing more than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs. We pay approximately $30 million per year in the form of property, sales, fees and special district taxes. The Joliet Refinery is proud to play a part in making our community a great place to live and work.
