For Our Communities

Chapter 06

Our Approach

As one of the world’s leading financial services companies, MetLife plays an important role in caring for its communities. All MetLife regions, lines of business and colleagues contribute to community engagement and outreach. MetLife Foundation helps connect MetLife colleagues with nonprofits and opportunities to make a difference through volunteerism, pro-bono work and grantmaking. These efforts contributed to MetLife Foundation reaching over $1 billion in all-time giving in 2023.




As a separate legal entity, MetLife Foundation has its own Board of Directors, chaired by MetLife, Inc.’s Head of Corporate Affairs. MetLife Foundation’s President and Chief Executive Officer reports directly to the Foundation’s Board Chair. As a fully integrated role, MetLife Foundation’s President and CEO also serves as MetLife, Inc.’s Head of Corporate Giving and Employee Volunteerism, a function overseen by the Governance and Corporate Responsibility Committee of MetLife’s Board of Directors.
