New York Life Foundation

ABOUT Inspired by New York Life's tradition of service and humanity, the New York Life Foundation has, since its founding in 1979, provided $300 million in charitable contributions to national and local nonprofit organizations. The Foundation invests in programs that benefit young people, particularly in the areas of educational enhancement and childhood bereavement support. The Foundation also facilitates “people power,” encouraging the community involvement of employees and agents of New York Life who volunteer where and when it matters most. For 175 years they’ve been entrusted to provide peace of mind through life’s transitions—their grant making efforts are an extension of their mission. WHERE THEY FOCUS THEIR FUNDING Bereavement Support They are a leading resource for helping educators, families, communities and caregivers learn how to support children who have lost a parent or sibling. This focus aligns with their purpose, and who they are as a company.   Middle School Transitions Their educational grantmaking programs focus on enrichment for middle schoolers during the critical out-of-school hours, in order to prepare them for their transition to high school and set them up for success. Supporting Their Workforce They provide Engagement Grants where and when there is a particular passion from their employees and agents towards a cause. They support, help facilitate, and recognize those who work locally to impact their communities. They put in the sweat; the Foundation puts in the equity.
