MetLife Foundation in Our Communities
Supporting Local Communities
MetLife Foundation is involved in a variety of grant-making ventures that positively affect communities around the world. These include grants in areas such as: health and medical research, arts and culture, disaster relief, community improvement, youth and education, and diversity and inclusion. These grants totaled $11.6 million in giving by MetLife Foundation, MetLife, Fundación MetLife México, and MetLife Foundation Korea in 2017.
In 2017, hurricanes and earthquakes caused devastating damage in Florida, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Texas. Not only did MetLife’s employees overcome disruptions in their own lives to serve their customers and help their communities recover, but MetLife Foundation responded with financial support for relief and recovery. The Foundation contributed $632,000 to the American Red Cross following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Fundación MetLife México committed $900,000 to respond to the devastating earthquakes that struck the country in September. The funding will help rebuild 70 homes and 12 schools across affected communities.
