Recently, 58 Primerica Home Office employees gathered for the 2015 Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services Great Days of Service project. This year, Primerica’s Great Days event benefitted the Wishes 4 Me Foundation. Founded as a non-profit organization on the belief that giving up is never an option, Wishes 4 Me works to assist adults who are disabled to live more active, involved and rewarding lives. Wishes 4 Me helps in providing or locating medical equipment, providing specialized housing and assisting with support groups.






Primerica employees built a retaining wall, repaired and painted a storage shed, planted shrubs and flowers, laid mulch, trimmed hedges, and improved the grounds of four Wishes 4 Me properties.

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.

On May 9 and 10, Primerica once again participated as a Presenting Sponsor in the Gwinnett County Relay for Life – the largest Relay for Life in the world.

Relay for Life is an organized, overnight community fundraising walk. Teams of people camp out around a track, and members of each team take turns walking around the track. Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie. It is a family-friendly environment for the entire community that raises funds for the American Cancer Society. This year, Primerica’s theme was “Sowing Seeds of Hope and Cultivating a Cure.”

Primerica organized 15 teams from the employees at their international headquarters. The teams designed interesting and profitable fundraisers over the months preceding the big event. Various raffles, the annual tricycle race, Picnic on the Patio, a fish fry, Cookies by the Pound, the St. Patrick’s Day Brunch, and numerous bake sales and auctions helped the teams to garner donations. While there are still donations to be counted, Primerica’s contribution to the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Relay for Life will exceed $80,000.
