Community: A Story of Caring and CommitmentContinue
Mutual of America Financial Group is built upon purposeful, values-driven leadership and a deep commitment to strengthening the diverse communities in which we live and work. That strong sense of social responsibility is seen in our customer-first attitude and in the many tangible ways that we bring our spirit of caring to life.
Each year, the Mutual of America Foundation sponsors a national competition through its Community Partnership Award. This award honors organizations and their programs that demonstrate the value of partnership in helping to create innovative solutions to some of society’s most difficult challenges. One powerful example is found in 2019’s recipient of the Thomas J. Moran Award, which is presented to the national award-winning program. The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (Cast) is confronting human trafficking, one of the most devastating human rights issues facing our country and the world. Through its Survivor Advocate Program, victims of human trafficking are empowered to rebuild their lives after years of captivity and abuse, and to turn their exploitation into an opportunity for advocacy to end human trafficking forever.
“Nearly all of our more than 1,000 employees participate in charitable events and voluntary giving in their own communities each year. Mutual of America supports their selfless efforts by providing matching contributions and gifts to hundreds of charitable organizations of all types.”John R. Greed CHAIRMAN, PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
We appreciate the good work our nonprofit clients provide to our communities and are committed to helping them fulfill their missions in a variety of ways, including corporate and employee participation and support. In addition, for 27 years, our employees have been the sole flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society® Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk®, helping to raise more than $3.5 million. We also are a top fundraiser for the Concern Spring Run, a run/walk event benefiting Concern Worldwide.
Mutual of America is also working to increase public awareness of social issues through our ongoing commitment to public television, in particular, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and its PBS NewsHour Weekend and MetroFocus programs. In addition, in 2019 we continued as a lead sponsor of the documentary film In Money We Trust?, which appeared on public TV stations nationwide. Based on a best-selling book by Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media, and Elizabeth Ames, the film provides a historical perspective of just how important the trust in money is to a prosperous society.
As we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we are proud of our rich heritage of caring, giving back and trying to make a difference in the communities where we live and work, and how it inspires us to stand together to help improve the financial security and quality of life for all Americans over our next 75 years.
