MetLife extends community grant program to Australia

MetLife has added Australia to its community impact grant program, which was launched in the US last year.

The invitation-only program is run by MetLife Foundation and offers selected recipients grants of $US50,000-$US100,000 ($76,000-$152,000) in four focus areas: hunger relief and nutrition, physical and mental well-being; environmental sustainability; and quality of life.

“Employee care is at the centre of this program, creating connectivity and vitality across our communities,” MetLife Foundation and Head of Corporate Affairs Mike Zarcone said.

“The program’s success is driven by MetLife employees coming together to live our purpose, with the expansion reflecting our commitment to our communities and our efforts to provide a source of immediate assistance to those in need globally.”
