2011 worldwide giving report
Wherever ExxonMobil operates, we work to make a positive contribution and strengthen local communities. We view this as fundamental to our commitment to being a good corporate citizen.
Our country-specific community investments are designed to help support economic progress, social development and capacity-building, and reflect the differing priorities of the communities in which we operate. At a corporate level, our strategic community investments include a focus on three major issues: women’s economic participation, access to math and science education, and supporting the fight against malaria.
In 2011, Exxon Mobil Corporation, its divisions and affiliates including XTO Energy, Inc., and ExxonMobil Foundation provided a combined $234.7 million in cash, goods and services worldwide.
Our worldwide spending includes contributions to nonprofit organizations; we also invest in social projects through joint-venture arrangements, production-sharing agreements, projects operated by others, and contractual social bonus arrangements. Of the total expenditure, $124.0 million supported communities in the United States and $110.7 million supported communities in other countries around the world.
In 2011, more than 23,000 ExxonMobil employees, retirees, and their families worldwide donated more than 728,900 volunteer hours to 5,300 charitable organizations in 43 countries through company-sponsored volunteer programs.

ExxonMobil employees and retirees donated $43.7 million through ExxonMobil’s matching gift, disaster relief and employee-giving programs. This includes more than $3.6 million donated by employees, retirees, dealers and distributors to support disaster relief efforts in response to the magnitude 9.0 earthquake which struck Japan in 2011.
