ExxonMobil Gives to Montana Schools; Educational Alliance Program Provides $48,000
IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2005--This year, the
ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program contributed $48,000 to Montana
K-12 educational institutions. Ninety-six (96) grants in the amount of
$500 each were awarded to a school nominated by local Exxon- or
Mobil-branded service stations.
"The Educational Alliance Program is an opportunity for our
branded retailers to support their neighborhood schools," said Mark
Shores, U.S. Retail Sales Director, ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing. "It is
one way we support our retailers' involvement in the communities where
we do business."
Educational Alliance grants can be used for a broad range of
programs based on the needs of the individual school. This year, many
schools are using the grants for special projects that stretch beyond
academics such as family literacy nights, field trips, a new track
field, and playground equipment. Schools also applied for grants to
enhance programs such as Accelerated Reading, Student
Recognition/Awards, and Gifted & Talented.
For the sixth year, the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program
has provided grants to local schools across the country. This year,
4,000 $500 grants totaling $2 million were made to K-12 educational
institutions in 43 states and the District of Columbia.
ExxonMobil is a long-standing supporter of education programs
around the world. Through numerous grant and scholarships programs,
employee volunteers and matching gift programs, ExxonMobil seeks to
improve the quality of local schools.
