Our Approach

As one of the world’s leading financial services companies, MetLife plays an important role in communities. All MetLife regions, lines of business and colleagues contribute to community engagement and outreach, including through volunteerism and pro bono work. Throughout the company, executives and senior leaders engage in and encourage community work via organizational volunteer goals. MetLife Foundation helps connect MetLife colleagues with nonprofits and opportunities to make a difference.

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.
