In recognition of team volunteer service that New York Life agents, employees and retirees give on behalf of nonprofit charitable organizations, the Foundation makes grants to local grassroots agencies with which they volunteer their time. Grants generally range from $500 to $2,500 and are aimed at recognizing short- and long-term projects, such as walk-a-thons, park beautification and soup kitchen programs.
During 2008, 70 TeamGrants were awarded totaling $166,500. Please click on the link to view a list of 2008 TeamGrants.
