ExxonMobil Donates More Than $500K to UH for Math, Science Initiatives

ExxonMobil has donated $586,766 to the University of Houston (UH) through its educational matching gift program to support math and science initiatives. Alumni and friends of UH who are among ExxonMobil’s employees and retirees contributed nearly $150,000 in 2010 to the university, which was matched three-to-one by the ExxonMobil Foundation. Up by $54,000 from the previous year, this year’s matching gift represents 164 contributions. Through these funds, universities are encouraged to invest in math and science programs to increase and support student engagement and progress in these subjects, encouraging students to develop a keen interest in careers in these fields. Mirroring ExxonMobil’s personnel, funds predominantly went to the Cullen College of Engineering, College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Bauer College of Business and the UH Law Center.
