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: Financial Health

We believe financial health should be within every person’s reach – no matter where they stand today. In 2013, this belief inspired MetLife Foundation to refocus its grant making toward financial health and inclusion.

$200 million

To support its vision and mission, MetLife Foundation has committed $200 million over five years to advance financial health and inclusion globally. We recognize that with the right financial knowledge and tools, low-income individuals and communities are able to more effectively navigate life’s challenges, take advantage of opportunities, and plan for the future.

Through 2017

Through 2017, the Foundation has provided grantees with $170 million to promote financial inclusion and remains on track to fulfill its $200 million commitment in 2018.
