National Life Group is a Fortune 1000 company, offering life insurance, annuities, and investment products through its affiliated companies to help individuals, businesses, and families throughout the United States reach their financial goals.
As it has for over 165 years, the company focuses on its core values of Do good. Be good. Make good. This is evident in the culture of the company, through the volunteer time logged by hundreds of employees annually, through trusted agents who help their clients, and through the National Life Group Foundation’s support of local non-profit organizations, like the Vermont Foodbank.
National Life Group supports the Vermont Foodbank through grant and sponsorship funding as well as with employee volunteers at its distribution facility. Last year, National Life employees logged nearly 125 volunteer hours at the Foodbank! The company is invested in this relationship because the of the Foodbank’s efficient and reliable support of Vermont communities, in which many National Life employees and retirees live.
The company also appreciates the strategic leadership position taken by the Vermont Foodbank as it tackles the enormous issue of hunger both locally and nationally through its annual Hunger Conference and partnerships with local food shelves and with Feeding America, the national network of food banks.
National Life Group also invests in the Vermont Foodbank’s Backpack Program which provides nutritious food to children on weekends, when food might be scarce or non-existent. This program supports the company’s giving philosophy which is to help children grow into healthy, successful adults.
