Mutual of America is dedicated to making a difference in the world, not only by helping individuals meet their long-term financial objectives, but also by having a direct, positive impact on the future of our society. A sense of social responsibility has distinguished Mutual of America since our founding as a provider of retirement plan services for employees in nonprofit organizations. After more than 76 years of serving this caring community, the dedication and sense of purpose demonstrated by our clients and their employees have had a profound impact on us.

Support Across the Board

During 2021, nonprofit organizations around the country continued to be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Though many organizations faced pressing challenges, they continued to provide essential services to their communities. Once again, Mutual of America employees across the country gave their time, support and resources to help organizations achieve their goals and advance their missions for the greater good.

Mutual of America, and many of its more than 1,000 employees, support numerous charitable organizations each year. Through the Company’s Matching Gift Program, as well as employee participation in various charitable activities, we support organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Toys-for-Tots, American Diabetes Association and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.

Mutual of America has always had a culture of caring and dedication to making a positive impact in the communities where we all live and work. That’s why serving those who serve others is at the heart of what we do.”

Employee Matching gift program provides extra impact

Mutual of America has a Matching Gift Program, matching dollar for dollar any donations made by its employees to qualified charities dedicated to improving the lives of individuals. Over the years, Mutual of America’s Board of Directors has periodically approved a change to match $2 for each eligible $1 donated by employees to charitable organizations to support various pressing issues and causes, ranging from COVID-19 to social justice and women’s programs.

Mutual of America Community partnership award

Since 1996, the Mutual of America Foundation has sponsored a national competition in which hundreds of organizations demonstrate the value of their partnership to the communities they serve, their ability to be replicated by others and their capacity to stimulate new approaches to addressing significant social issues.

Each year, five organizations are selected by an independent committee to receive the Community Partnership Award. One receives the Thomas J. Moran Award, which includes $100,000 and a documentary video about the organization’s program. The remaining four are named Honorable Mention recipients, and each receives $50,000.

The 2021 Thomas J. Moran Award winner was the Nathaniel Project. The Nathaniel Project was established in 2000 by CASES (The Center for Alternative Sentencing & Employment Services) to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success.

Mutual of America is proud to be the exclusive Flagship Sponsor for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. One year after participating in a virtual walk, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees joined the Mutual of America New York and Florida teams in October of 2021 for the annual Walk to help fund research in the fight against breast cancer and the many programs the American Cancer Society offers. Over the past 29 years, our fundraising efforts have helped to raise more than $3 million—including another $55,000 (including corporate donations) in 2021—for this vital cause.
