Social Responsibility

Part of something bigger than ourselves.

Corporate responsibility isn’t just a box we check but a living and breathing part of who we are and how we operate. We are committed to making our community a great place to work and live.

We’re making good on this promise, to help create a sustainable future for our customers in some specific ways:

  • Annual Charitable Giving Campaign: Each year our employees set out to raise money for local nonprofits by holding various fundraisers while teaming up with us for in-house events that benefit select sponsored charities. Between our employees’ efforts and company match, we raised over $950,000 last year for non-profit organizations. Past sponsored charities include America’s VetDogs, Second Chances Garage, ThanksUSA and Heartly House.   
  • Community Awards: Employees who give back through fundraisers, charity events or by inspiring young people and fostering community spirit don’t go unnoticed. Spearheaded by Chairman Sir John Kingman, employees across all Legal & General businesses nominate one another for key achievements in volunteerism each year. Winners are celebrated during an annual luncheon and awards ceremony.
  • NAILBA Charitable Foundation: As a charter member of the NAILBA Charitable Foundation, last year we sponsored a $5,000 raffle prize during NAILBA’s primary fundraising event and offered to match $50 donations up to $25,000 to encourage members to give. Through these efforts and more, we helped raise nearly $66,000 for the NAILBA Charitable Foundation in 2018.
America's VetDogs is extremely grateful to Legal & General America for their generous donation to further our mission to provide even more service dogs to our nation's heroes. The fundraising efforts Legal & General America held during their Annual Giving Campaign will enable us to change the lives of veterans with disabilities so that they may live a life without boundaries.
