News Release -
Grant Program Provides New York Schools with Needed Support; ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program Provides $218,500
IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 2, 2004--Education
professionals in New York continue to be challenged in keeping up with
their tech-savvy students and engaging them in a classroom
environment. ExxonMobil is helping teachers and school officials
achieve their educational objectives through its Educational Alliance
This year, the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program contributed
$218,500 to New York K-12 educational institutions. Four hundred and
thirty-seven (437) grants in the amount of $500 each were awarded to a
school nominated by local Exxon- or Mobil-branded service stations.
"ExxonMobil is proud of the impact the Educational Alliance
Program has in our communities across the country," said Mark Shores,
U. S. Retail Sales Director for ExxonMobil. "Through our local Exxon-
or Mobil-branded service stations, we recognize the tremendous value
in investing in the education of our youth."
The Educational Alliance Program is a grassroots community
initiative that gives local retailers the opportunity to invest in the
future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood
schools. Under this program, an Exxon or Mobil retailer can identify a
school in their community who could best benefit from this program.
In 2004, Educational Alliance grants were used to enhance school
technology programs, allowing the purchase of innovative computer
software, reading, math and technology programs. Schools also utilized
the funds for new books, student leadership training, exploratory
science laboratories, and fine arts programs.
ExxonMobil has been a long-standing supporter of education
programs around the world. Through numerous grant and scholarship
programs, employee volunteers and matching gift programs, ExxonMobil
continues to improve the quality of education in communities where we
live and work.
