About Us

Giving back to the places where MetLife operates helps foster strong connections between the company, employees, and communities. MetLife Foundation positively impacts communities through grants for financial health and well-being, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), youth and education, community improvement, disaster relief, and arts and culture. Such grants help people manage household budgets, recover from the unexpected, build short-term savings and stability, and plan for the future.

The Foundation supports communities through grants that support and uplift low- and moderate-income people around the world to build a more confident future. MetLife Foundation partners with nonprofit organizations and social enterprises to close the equity and wealth gap, build financial health and inclusion, and support small business owners - all issues that were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. These focus areas are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, business priorities, and 2030 DEI Commitments.

Since 1976, MetLife Foundation has contributed over $900 million to strengthen communities.

Employee Volunteerism
