Overview:

Aegon Transamerica Foundation

We're committed to improving the wellness of our customers.

Transamerica believes our responsibilities extend beyond our corporate walls. That's why we created the Aegon Transamerica Foundation in 1994. Through a combination of financial grants and the volunteer commitment of our employees, this foundation supports nonprofit organizations focused on the education, health, and well-being of the communities where we live and work.

Categories of Support

Our Foundation grant dollars go to non-profit organizations in the following categories:

Arts & Culture:
  • Programs that foster creativity in the areas of music and the performing arts;
  • greater accessibility to the arts for youth and the underserved;
  • support for venues that promote artistic expression.
Civic & Community:
  • Programs that encourage community development and promote civic engagement and leadership;
  • initiatives that promote greater quality of life within the communities in which Transamerica employees live and work.
Education & Financial Literacy:
  • Programs that provide and promote education and personal development opportunities, especially in the areas of financial literacy.
Health & Wellness:
  • Programs committed to improving the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities by promoting health awareness and education;
  • healthy nutrition;
  • medical services and disease prevention.
Human Services:
  • Programs that provide or promote access to essential human needs and services (i.e., access to housing, food, clothing, job skills training)
In addition to the areas above, a special fund may be established for employee donations, often matched dollar-for-dollar, and provided to an organization assisting in disaster relief efforts.
