Workplace grants Funding nonprofits that matter to our employees

As an extension of our grantmaking, New York Life is dedicated to promoting local engagement in the communities where our employees and agents work and live. We seek to integrate our financial investments with sustained, company-wide philanthropic activity through volunteer programs, fundraising campaigns, team grant opportunities, and more.
