Doing good works

Securian has a strong-rooted tradition of taking an active role in our community through philanthropy and volunteerism. Community is one of Securian’s six core values – and we work hard to be a good neighbor.

Making meaningful contributions

Throughout our 136-year history, Securian has made giving a priority. In the past 10 years, we’ve given more than $23 million in cash gifts to our community. When including in-kind gifts and corporate volunteerism, Securian’s giving totals more than $34 million since 2006.

In 2015 alone, Securian contributed more than $2.8 million in cash gifts and $1.8 million in in-kind gifts and volunteer services.

We estimate 90 percent of our associates participate in our annual Greater Twin Cities United Way campaign, which raised $1 million in 2015, $676,000 of which came directly from associates. This level of giving ranks us as one of the top corporate contributors in the Twin Cities for the eighth consecutive year – a significant achievement relative to our size.

The Securian Foundation

We established the Securian Foundation in 1988 to further our charitable giving efforts. The Foundation works to enhance the quality of life and vitality of our community by investing in nonprofit organizations that make a positive difference and advance the common good.
