#GivingTuesday, which falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving,
encourages acts of kindness and generosity from individuals, civic
organizations and businesses to help foster lasting change in
communities. Throughout the year, Exelon matches employee charitable
donations of $25 or more dollar-for-dollar. On #GivingTuesday, Exelon
will not only match employee contributions dollar-for-dollar, but will
also contribute an additional $100 on employee donations of $100 or more
to their charity of choice.

So far in 2017, employees have pledged more than $8.2 million through
Exelon's Employee Giving Campaign, exceeding the company's goal and
breaking previous records.

"We are proud to be part of the #GivingTuesday campaign and support its
mission to bring people together through community service," said Maggie
FitzPatrick, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs, Philanthropy
and Customer Engagement at Exelon. "Exelon employees across the country
are passionate about giving back to the communities where we live and
work – dedicating more than 176,000 hours to community service so far
this year. It's one of the many ways we are living our values during the
holidays and throughout the year."

Exelon's community programs engage employees in volunteer and charitable
giving opportunities that enrich them personally and professionally,
while positively impacting the community year-round. In the month of
November alone, Exelon volunteer activities included:

  • Tutoring low-income children to improve their reading comprehension
    skills through the Working in the Schools Initiative (WITS) in Chicago
    and Philadelphia READS
