Students who visit the Primerica storefront, located in Finance Park, will learn the financial principles of “how money works” and the importance of income protection and debt management. This next generation experiential learning experience shows students how the financial decisions they make today can impact their future.

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.

ABC Foundation

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.”

In addition to their stellar personal service efforts, Primerica Home Office workers participate in the Gwinnett County, GA, Great Day of Service every year. At the end of October, a team of workers volunteered at the Lawrenceville Housing Authority, an organization that offers affordable rental units to low-income families. At the Rich Martin Property, employees installed 78 pairs of shutters on the units, pressured washed homes, planted more than 100 shrubs, built a pergola for the playground area and repaired two retaining walls.
