Employee Programs


Marathon Petroleum offers financial support through several programs. Whether you or your family are adopting a child, pursuing a higher education, making a contribution to a college or university or volunteering at a nonprofit organization, we encourage and want to help you achieve those goals.

Adoption Assistance

New Employee Giving & Volunteer Portal

The new Employee Giving & Volunteer Portal can be accessed at Summary program descriptions and quick-step navigation guides are provided below.

Employee Giving Campaign

MPC locations throughout the enterprise will be participating in MPC’s annual giving campaign from August 1 through November 30, led by their local campaign leads. Qualified employee donations made to eligible organizations during the local pledge period will be matched by the company at 60% as payments are processed. Campaign payment options will include payroll, credit card or offline (qualifying previous donations not recorded in the Portal). The company match will be paid directly to the qualified charity selected by the employee, as donations are processed. Payroll deductions will not begin until the first pay period in 2020 and will end on the last pay period in 2020. Employees may elect to give to any non-profit organization, and their donation along with any qualified Company matching funds will go to the eligible charitable organization the employee selected.

Volunteer Incentive Program

To support and encourage employee involvement in the community, MPC will award eligible individual employees a $500 virtual CauseCard redeemable in the portal to the eligible charity of their choice for a minimum of 24 hours of qualified volunteer hours. (Hours may be pooled from multiple events for this individual award.) In addition, eligible employees may apply for an additional $500 grant on behalf of a qualified group volunteer event generating a minimum of 24 collective volunteer hours led by the employee with immediate family or other co-workers. The group award will be paid as a grant to the charity where the group volunteer event took place. The maximum number of grants eligible per year is two – one grant for the employee and one grant for the employee and immediate family member and/or internal employee group, for a maximum grant amount per employee per year of $1,000. You can record your volunteer time in increments in the Portal, and after Community Affairs’ monthly review of employees who have reached the 24-hour minimum, you should receive notification that your service was eligible and that your CauseCard is ready for redemption.

Matching Gifts Program For Higher Education

To support and encourage employee giving to institutes of higher learning, MPC will match qualified employee gifts, dollar-for-dollar, to accredited two- and four-year colleges and universities. Donations are matched up to $10,000 per employee per calendar year. Employees may request a matching gift for donations made in the calendar year through March 31 of the following year. Credit card and offline payment options will be available. All requests must be submitted through the portal (no paper forms will be accepted). Employees who have not yet utilized their higher education match for any donations made since 1/1/19 may do so by uploading their receipt in the portal and recording it as an “offline” gift.
