A Transformative Time of Giving

Over the past year, the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic profoundly impacted nonprofit organizations of all types. Many find themselves struggling financially just when the essential services they provide are needed more than ever. During this extremely challenging time, Mutual of America and its employees have once again demonstrated their special culture of caring, giving back and making a meaningful difference in communities across the country by giving their time, talents and financial resources to help those most in need.

Boosting the impact of employee giving

Mutual of America’s Board of Directors approved a change to match $2 for each eligible $1 donated by employees between May and December of 2020 to charitable organizations adversely impacted by COVID-19 or dedicated to social justice causes. This increase from Mutual of America’s normal dollar-for-dollar match enabled employees to make an even greater impact for those in need.

Bringing new relevance to fundraising

Nearly all of our more than 1,000 employees participate in charitable events each year. When many of those went virtual, our employees stepped up to help vital community organizations extend their reach and fulfill their missions in new and socially distant ways.

Shining a spotlight

Mutual of America continued to raise public awareness of social issues through our ongoing commitment to public television, in particular, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and its PBS NewsHour Weekend program.

Supporting the greater good

We continue to honor the important work of our nonprofit clients and support their selfless efforts by providing matching contributions and gifts to numerous organizations across the country.

The Healing Power of Art

One example of our commitment to the community can be found on the West Coast, where Erick De La Rosa, a Participant Account Representative in our San Diego office is helping to brighten the lives of disadvantaged children through his extraordinary talent as a community artist. Spend a minute watching his positive energy shine through the art he creates at the Fresh Start Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital in this video. By the way, Fresh Start’s Surgery Weekend program was the national award winner of the 2014 Mutual of America Community Partnership Award!

Walking the Walk—

American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

28 Years of Flagship Sponsorship

For 28 years, Mutual of America has been a flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. While the 2020 Walk was virtual due to the ongoing pandemic, the commitment Mutual of America employees have toward ending breast cancer remained the same. The Company raised more than $50,000 (including corporate donations), adding to the more than $3 million it has raised for this important cause.
