MetLife Foundation

Our Mission

Since 1976, MetLife Foundation has provided more than $783 million in grants and $70 million in program-related investments to make a positive difference for the individuals, families and communities we serve. Through all of our work – grant making, volunteer engagement and impact investing – our goal is to build healthier and stronger communities worldwide.

Our Global Focus: A Commitment to Financial Health

Financial Health means being able to effectively manage one’s household budget, recover from the unexpected and plan for the future.

$200 million achieved

In 2018, MetLife Foundation realized its five-year goal to provide $200 million in grants to advance financial inclusion worldwide. Going forward, the Foundation will broaden its focus to financial health, providing solutions to help lower-income people effectively manage household budgets, recover from the unexpected and plan for the future.

Partnering with Financial Health Innovators

MetLife Foundation collaborates with organizations to provide solutions that apply data-driven insights and digital innovations to enable lower-income people to take control over their financial health. Hosting and convening competitions is one way the Foundation identifies and supports effective partners and ventures. For example, Inclusion Plus, a global program of country-level competitions, identifies growing social ventures focused on financial health. In 2018, the Foundation partnered with Verb, a social innovation platform, to host competitions in Spain, Portugal, Australia, Korea and the United States.
