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.
We support our employees and financial professionals by funding the nonprofit organizations with which they work.
New York Life and the New York Life Foundation both strive to serve individuals, families, and communities in their work. For New York Life that means over 175 years providing financial stability and protection, no matter what life may bring.
In response to COVID-19, New York Life launched an Acts of Kindness—Civic Engagement program to encourage our workforce to help their neighbors and encourage civic engagement. With every hour logged, a $17.50 Cause Card is awarded to give to a charity of their choice.
We established The New York Life Emergency Assistance Fund to provide emergency financial assistance to its employees and financial professionals who incurred unexpected expenses as a result of a catastrophic disaster. Over the past few years, the fund has provided support in response to federal, state, and local government-declared disasters including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires, and COVID-19.
