Baylor Receives More Than $200,000 From Exxon Education FoundationMay 19, 1999
Baylor University recently received a $201,900 grant from the Exxon Education Foundation, which donates $3 for every $1 Exxon employees, retirees and surviving spouses contribute to colleges and universities.
The matching gift contribution was presented to Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. by James Dale, general counsel for Exxon Exploration Co. Dale received his bachelor's degree and his juris doctor from Baylor.
The foundation's Educational Matching Gift Program, which was established in 1962, encourages individuals to support higher education by directing funds to designated colleges and universities. This year, 49 Exxon employees, retirees and surviving spouses designated Baylor for their donations.
Out of 887 colleges and universities that were designated in this year's matching gift program, Baylor ranked in the top 10 of gift recipients.
