The Corporate Responsibility Department is searching for a new vendor to handle donations for our Matching Gifts and Volunteers for Good programs. While we continue our search, we want to support the schools and nonprofit organizations where you donate money and volunteer your time.

An interim system is now in place to match gifts made directly to accredited schools and childhood bereavement organizations and to process your individual and team volunteer grants. Please note that we are unable to process payroll or ledger deductions or credit/debit card donations at this time.

Employees, retirees, and agents who are proactive Council members are eligible to apply for these programs. Details may be found below.

Matching Gifts

To have your gift matched, you will need a PDF of your receipt ready to upload. Only receipts for gifts made will be matched; credit card statements or cancelled checks will not be accepted. You will need your school or nonprofit organization’s complete legal name and address, its tax identification number (EIN) — the nine-digit number assigned by the IRS —or the NCES school code, and the name, phone number, and email address of your contact there. All matches made through the interim system will be part of your 2015 match cap of $5,000.

To find your organization’s EIN, click here. For a school’s NCES code, click here.

Volunteers for Good Grants

To qualify for an individual grant, volunteer at least 60 hours with one nonprofit organization over 12 months and apply. Your organization will receive $1,000 in recognition of your service. You may receive one individual volunteer grant each calendar year.

Team grants support groups of five or more New York Life agents and/or employees working on a project for a minimum of 40 collective hours. Teams can earn from $500 to $10,000 for a nonprofit organization; the grant amount is based on the number of hours volunteered by the New York Life team. Applicants must be employees or proactive Council members, but team members can include non-proactive agents. Team leaders may keep track of projects here and for budget parameters, click here.

For all volunteer grants, you will need your school or nonprofit organization’s complete legal name and address, its tax identification number (EIN)—the nine-digit number assigned by the IRS—or the NCES school code, and the name, phone number, and email address of your contact there.
