Atlanta Business Chronicle recently named The Primerica Foundation, our company’s philanthropic arm, as one of Georgia’s “Top Corporate Foundations” (the annual rankings are based on total giving). The Foundation is also celebrating its fifth anniversary of funding.
“The core of Primerica’s charitable funding and philanthropy is to support programs and nonprofits that help move families into self-sufficiency,” said Karen Fine Saltiel, Chairman of The Primerica Foundation. “We also fund programs and organizations that enhance our communities and the quality of life for all residents, because we believe in a holistic approach to achieving self-sufficiency.”
From 2011-2015, The Primerica Foundation funded 182 grants totaling over $4 million to nonprofits throughout the state of Georgia, Metro Atlanta and Gwinnett County. Program areas funded included arts and culture, community development, education and youth enrichment, financial literacy and self-sufficiency, and health and human services.
“The Primerica Foundation is only one part of our total community outreach,” Saltiel continued. “Primerica has a strong corporate giving program, our employee volunteer program is outstanding, and we’re engaged in several strategic community partnerships.”
