Once a year, Primerica Home Office employees get the satisfaction of nominating and choosing deserving non-profit organizations through the Employee Choice Grant Awards program.

This year, five area non-profit organizations were awarded $10,000 each after they were chosen in a company-wide vote in August.

The awards are designed for small, lesser-known non-profits that still do good and necessary things, but aren’t as widely known as some bigger organizations, such as the American Cancer Society.

Throughout the year, employees can nominate organizations for the awards. The Primerica Foundation researches the organizations, compiles a list and puts the list to a vote.

The top five winners for 2016 were FurKids, Lift Up Atlanta, Veterans Resource Center of Gwinnett, Happy Tails Pet Therapy and Spectrum Autism Support Group, Inc.

Grant recipients thanked the company and employees who personally donated to the Primerica Foundation at a celebratory luncheon held Oct. 14.

Ellen Gerstein, executive director of the Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services, (Veterans Resource Center) said she wishes there were “more Primericas.” “You have been and remained a ‘top giver’ for so many non-profits and from someone who works with a lot of non-profits in Gwinnett County, thank you from all of us for that gift back into this community.”

The Employee Choice Grant Awards is only one area of community outreach funded by the Primerica Foundation. Each year, The Primerica Foundation contributes more than $1 million back to the community.

The Primerica Foundation was named a Top 25 Georgia-based company-sponsored foundation by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

    We would like to be considered for the grant to receive $10,000 for this unique nature park. We are in the heart of Los Angeles, California and wWe are in need of funds to continue to provide low to no-cost programs for the community. We are the only staffed nature park within this 20 mile radius. As you will see from the website, we provide camp programs, gardening classes, arts and crafts, nature play and walks and fitness programs at no cost. The only class which costs at this time is the guitar lesson at $10 per month for four (4) lessons.

    Thanks in advance for you consideration.

    I would like to learn more about other charitable things that Primerica does outside of the Atlanta, GA area to educate impoverished children and their families on financial literacy where it is not a conflict of interest for the agents can show them how money works.

    I am amazed how much Primerica does.
