Community Investment

Social impact doesn’t start or end with a check. American Family Insurance believes the most effective and long-lasting philanthropy combines financial support with employee volunteerism, creativity and expertise, all of which leads to greater accomplishment, collaboration and accountability.

One way to inspire, protect and restore dreams is by placing a focus on strengthening families in our communities facing socioeconomic or health circumstances that may hinder their ability to pursue and achieve their dreams.

American Family will support communities in our 19 operating states by promoting resiliency and recovery. By issuing purposeful and meaningful grants, we will restore families by helping fill their unmet needs and address achievement and attainment gaps in our communities.

We look at our focus as a way to level the playing field by building concrete relationships with non-profit communities to help them in the short term, which will help us better identify future needs.

Our Quarter 2 Grant Cycle is now open!

The deadline to submit applications is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9 – no exceptions! Note, if you have previously received a grant through the AFI Dreams Foundation, you will not be considered for additional funding until your final report has been submitted through the portal. Any questions, please contact Community Investment.
