At Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC), philanthropy is an integral part of our business and a sound investment in the communities where we live and work. We believe that promoting and contributing to the health and vitality of the communities in which we have the privilege to operate is essential to our success. We focus our resources where we can have the greatest impact and on issues that affect the long-term value of our assets and communities.
As a corporation, we seek out innovative programs that align with our values and goals. MPC is a major supporter of United Way as a way to address a broad scope of health and human services needs in the communities in which we operate. MPC is also a strong supporter of education, providing scholarships to both empower the socially or economically disadvantaged and to provide opportunities for students to reach their full potential.
Of course, no two MPC locations are alike. As a result, we have Local Charitable Giving Committees at each of our major locations which can best direct local philanthropic dollars.
