The Allianz Foundation for North America empowers young people to shape a secure future.
The financial services companies of the worldwide Allianz Group share a fundamental concern for safeguarding the future. In all areas of business, Allianz companies have a common purpose in empowering people to manage risks and to plan effectively for the future — all in the interest of numerous stakeholders: customers, employees, shareholders, and society itself. Working to safeguard the future is what Allianz companies do best; it is the heart of the Allianz Group's business.
Established in 2002, the Allianz Foundation for North America empowers young people to shape a secure future and is part of a global network of Allianz-affiliated foundations dedicated to addressing challenges faced by society at large. This network includes the Allianz Foundation for Sustainability and the Allianz Cultural Foundation, both based in Germany, as well as other foundations in Europe, Asia, and here in the US. The Allianz Foundation for North America makes major project grants coast to coast in cities in which Allianz companies maintain head- and major representative offices and supports Allianz employees in becoming involved in local projects.
Corporate Responsibility Programs
Allianz companies in the Unites States bring their concern for safeguarding the future to bear not only through outstanding products and services but also through diverse corporate giving and foundation programs and a shared commitment to sustainability. From empowerment and life skills development for young people to the promotion of financial literacy and support for seniors — all Allianz corporate responsibility programs reflect clearly the company's commitment to safeguarding our shared future.
Allianz Global Assistance believes in young people's ability to shape our future. We also support international travel as a learning experience. Since the beginning of our ScholarTrips essay contest in 2004, we have been proud to award $65,000 in scholarship prizes to area middle and high school students. We have enjoyed sharing the joy of travel with area students and hearing about the students' experiences.
Allianz Life Corporate Giving Program
The Allianz Corporate Giving Program is aligned to support local organizations that focus on improving financial literacy and providing services to seniors. We focus our efforts on developing a stronger and more vibrant local community that improves the quality of life for our employees, customers, and the public.
