More than $1.2 Million to LSU Foundation
ExxonMobil presented a check for $886,774 to the LSU Foundation as part of the ExxonMobil Foundation's 2012 Educational Matching Gift Program.
The gift, announced during an on-campus breakfast on April 25, represents the ExxonMobil Foundation match of 2012 employee, retiree and surviving spouse donations of $319,115 to LSU, the LSU AgCenter, and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center. With the ExxonMobil Foundation match, the total commitment from ExxonMobil, its employees and retirees was $1,205,889, and continues the company's longstanding support for LSU.
"ExxonMobil's generous matching gift program reflects a commitment to philanthropy that directly impacts the LSU community and those we serve," said Lee Griffin, president and CEO of the LSU Foundation. "Matching gifts multiply the impact that our alumni and friends make when they partner with the LSU Foundation to support the programs that are most meaningful to them."MORE >>
