AIG Teams Actively Support Houston Colleagues and Community Following Harvey

AIG has announced that it is providing $1 million in aid to organizations focused on emergency relief and ongoing recovery following Hurricane Harvey. The company will allocate $500,000 to Houston-based nonprofits for immediate local relief efforts. The remaining $500,000 will go toward critical medium- and longer-term recovery efforts in partnership with The Center for Disaster Philanthropy, a leader in strategic disaster-related giving.

AIG and its people have a long history of working with local non-profit service organizations through years of volunteerism and employee contributions. AIG colleagues in areas affected by natural disasters are quickly active in their own neighborhoods.  This was most recently seen in Houston with AIG people helping to rescue those trapped by the flooding and opening their doors to people without homes. For example, AIG’s Don Paullo acted decisively to rescue over 100 neighbors and pets in his canoe. Leigh Harrington and his family opened their doors to neighbors, earning their home the nickname “Hotel Harrington” from friends.

Brian Duperreault, AIG President and Chief Executive Officer said “We have been focused on ensuring the safety of our employees and their families, while responding to the needs of our clients and the community.  We greatly appreciate and support the efforts of local nonprofit partners who are well-placed to meet the immediate needs of the community, while also responding to the longer-term needs that emerge as the full impact of storms is known.”

AIG teams are taking active steps to support colleagues and the community in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma:

  • AIG contacts with each employee to confirm and re-confirm that they are safe and have adequate supplies.
  • AIG’s Global Security team provides on-the-ground support, including evacuating colleagues in need of help and providing emergency supplies like food and water.
  • Travel Guard, AIG’s travel services provider, steps in as a single point of contact for all non-life-threatening matters, whether employees are in the affected area or trying to make their way back to their homes there.
  • AIG makes emergency financial assistance available to its employees who suffer storm damage or loss.
  • Through its Matching Grants Program, AIG matches 2:1 donations by employees to eligible U.S.-based charitable organizations that are supporting relief efforts.
  • To support their colleagues in affected areas, AIG people purchase Target eGift cards.

Making a Difference

Strengthening Communities Through Volunteerism

AIG employees helped make a collective impact in communities worldwide by volunteering more than 42,000 hours in 2016. In April alone, AIG’s Global Volunteer Month, thousands of employees in 23 countries demonstrated their willingness to help others by participating in 119 volunteer projects and donating over 13,000 hours.

Whether they devoted an entire day teaching children financial literacy with Junior Achievement, or a few hours walking to raise awareness for cardiovascular diseases with the American Heart Association, mentoring a college student through Enactus, building a home with Habitat for Humanity or packing meals with Rise Against Hunger to be sent to the world’s most vulnerable populations, every hour counted towards community development.

AIG helps our partners make a difference by helping reduce traffic fatalities, assisting wounded servicemen and women, and ensuring that more than 22,800 students in over 1,000 classrooms worldwide receive programming focused on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.
