The Primerica Foundation, along with The United Way of Greater Atlanta and other partners, aims to take on student hunger within the Gwinnett County School District thanks to school level non-profit organizations, one of which was started by a tenth grader. The Primerica Foundation is committed to supporting community causes that contribute to self-sufficiency for low-to-moderate income families and individuals.

Now that they’ve been given $25,000 in seed money to get started, a discreet on-campus food pantry at Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee and an elaborate community garden at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross will have the funds to watch these projects grow. The “micro-grants” were awarded through the inaugural Spark Prize Gwinnett, a newly formed non-profit competition to recognize community members who are addressing areas of concern in hunger, health, education, income, and homelessness within the county.

The positive impact that Junior Achievement has on youth is truly extraordinary. More than 80% of middle school students report understanding the concept of a budget after experiencing their curriculum. Junior Achievement’s long-term goal is to educate students about their finances and encourage them to set future educational, career and financial goals for themselves.

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.”
