AIG partners with non-profits and NGOs to offer direct financial support and/or access to employee volunteers and to extend our charitable and philanthropic reach. These partners are vital to our mission to lift the communities in which we operate as a responsible corporate citizen.
Our charitable partnerships include:
Junior Achievement, which provides financial education to young students. In 2021 alone, over 200 AIG employees helped more than 10,000 students across 21 cities.
The American Heart Association, which AIG has supported since 2009 to raise awareness around heart disease and participate through Heart Walk events. In 2021, 230+ AIG colleagues and their families committed to leading heart healthy lives by participating in the American Heart Association Heart Walks, resulting in $122,000+ donated by AIG and its colleagues in support of the American Heart Association.
Humanitarian OpenStreetMaps, through which AIG employees volunteer their time to help produce crowdsourced virtual maps of unexplored or disaster-prone areas to assist with the delivery of humanitarian aid. In 2021, over 380 contributors from AIG mapped 39,749 buildings across Botswana, Zambia, Barbados and Guatemala and over 60 km of road.
Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief NGO that AIG has supported since 2014. Through Rise Against Hunger, AIG employees have packed nearly 1.5 million meals for the world’s most vulnerable populations. Due to the pandemic, AIG could not hold in-person meal-packing events, and instead sponsored Rise Against Hunger’s Hope for South Sudan sustainable agriculture program.
Life & Retirement FutureU Scholars - AIG Life & Retirement launched FutureU Scholars, a multi-year partnership designed to promote the future success of underrepresented high school and college students in Harris County, Texas. This collaboration with EVERFI, Houston high schools and two historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) will provide more than 5,000 students with financial education. Additionally, the HBCU FutureU Scholars will have access to scholarships, internships and mentorship opportunities with diverse professionals from AIG.
