Community engagement

Strengthening connections with our neighbors

Culture of giving

Giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of who we are as a company. Our employees, retirees and board members are at the heart of our culture of giving, and we create opportunities for them to support causes they care about.

Volunteer programs

Company-sponsored volunteer programs align with the Securian Financial Foundation's philanthropic focus on financial stability, youth and education and vibrant communities to fulfill our purpose of helping to build secure tomorrows. Employees may volunteer to:

  1. Mentor students 
  2. Collect, serve and deliver food to community members 
  3. Collaborate as teams on community-building projects 

We also organize company-wide events to engage our family of employees in our overall community impact. These include school supplies, food and blood drives; holiday gift programs; our annual giving campaign and many others. 

Paid time off to give back

Our employees go above and beyond in many ways, including dedicating time outside of work to their community. To support their pursuits, our volunteer paid time off (VPTO) program allows employees to take time off from work to volunteer for organizations and causes that matter to them. 

Matching gift program

The matching gift program encourages Securian Financial employees, retirees and members of the board of directors to get more out of their personal charitable giving. 

Under the program, the Securian Financial Foundation will match individual gifts of at least $25 to qualified nonprofit organizations, up to $2,000 per employee/retiree/board member per year. 

Securian Financial retirees and board members may request a matching gift by downloading the matching gift application (pdf) and following the instructions.

Volunteer Plus program

Our Volunteer Plus program rewards employees who volunteer 25 hours of their own time toward making their communities better places to live. When employees reach this level of volunteerism with an eligible nonprofit organization, the Securian Financial Foundation will donate $250 to the nonprofit, up to $500 per employee per year.

And because employees don't stop volunteering when they retire from Securian Financial, our retirees are eligible for Volunteer Plus, too. Retirees may apply for the Volunteer Plus grant by downloading the application (pdf) and following the instructions.
