Each year the New York Life Giving Campaign is an opportunity for our employees and agents to come together to donate and raise funds for the philanthropic causes important to them.
Fun and festive fundraisers are held at New York Life’s offices across the country, from car washes, block parties, mini basketball dunking contests, to puppy cuddling events. Each year Chairman and CEO Ted Mathas leads the way with a fundraising event at the New York Life Home Office, in which he matches all contributions donated. And the New York Life Foundation matches gifts made to organizations focused on childhood bereavement, eligible elementary, secondary, or higher educational institutions, and its strategic educational grantees.
“It’s such a special New York Life annual tradition that demonstrates how much our company values giving back to the community and making a positive difference in the world around us” says Sheila Davidson, Executive Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel, and this year’s Giving Campaign Chair.

While the Giving Campaign takes place during a relatively short span of time, all year long you can find our agents and employees donating their time and talents to causes and nonprofits where they live and work. In 2018 agents and employees donated more than 136,000 hours of volunteer time to address community needs across the country and the company provided $1.5 million in volunteer grants to support such efforts.
