BYU receives record matching donation from Exxon-Mobil

Brigham Young University recently received a donation from ExxonMobil Corporation for $122,379 through its 3-to-1 matching program, making it the largest corporate-employee matching donation ever received by BYU.

Sixty-three ExxonMobil employees, as well as BYU Alumni, donated $65,793 to BYU. ExxonMobil matched the donations 3-to-1 up to $5,000.

An additional $29,000 will come from the BYU President's Leadership Council. The total amount BYU will receive is more than $217,000.

Those making contributions designated how the funds should be used. Some chose scholarships or mentored student learning, while others chose a specific college. Other donors left the designation to the discretion of BYU, taking advantage of additional fund matching provided by the PLC through the University Annual Fund, president's priorities or any of the college annual funds.
