RESTON, Va. -- December 06, 2012

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide,
announced today that the MAXIMUS Foundation has made a donation of $40,000 in
employee contributions and corporate matching funds to the American Red Cross
to support its response to disaster relief from Superstorm Sandy.

“With multiple office locations in the greater New York City area, many of our
own employees were displaced as a result of the storm damage,” commented
MAXIMUS Foundation Chairman John F. Boyer. “We are grateful for the outpouring
of compassion and financial support from our employees across the country, and
we are pleased to make this donation to the American Red Cross to use in
helping the many individuals and families who are still in great need.”

Superstorm Sandy is likely to be the largest Red Cross response in the United
States over the past five years. More than 5,800 Red Cross workers from all 50
states are supporting shelters, providing food and water and driving through
neighborhoods to distribute meals and supplies. Since Sandy made landfall in
October, Red Cross response organizations have provided more than 140,000
shelter stays across the affected region.

“We are so appreciative of this much needed support from MAXIMUS and its
employees,” said Linda Mathes, CEO of the American Red Cross in the National
Capital Region. “When Hurricane Sandy barreled up the East Coast, causing
damage and power outages to millions, the Red Cross was on the ground and
ready to respond. Whether it was a warm blanket, a hot meal or a shoulder to
lean on, we were able to be there for those in need thanks to the generosity
of wonderful contributors. Our response to Sandy is large and costly, and this
help is critical. We are still on the ground and helping, and the MAXIMUS
Foundation’s contribution will go a long way to meet the needs of men, women
and children who continue to need our help.”
