Primerica in the Community
The Meaning Behind the Money
Charitable funding from Primerica and grant funding from The Primerica Foundation has helped transform lives, families and communities for the better. Dollar amounts don't really tell the whole story but when you know what the dollars have done for people in need —then you know the meaning behind the money.
Here are some real results and community impacts made by Primerica funding:
Thousands of people were assisted by The Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services and The United Way of Greater Atlanta. These organizations provide programs and services to meet critical human needs, and programs to give people ladders out of poverty.
Low income senior citizens were able to remain in their homes due to funding for home improvements that gave them adequate heat, ventilation, running water, electricity and accident prevention.
Through assisted admissions program funding by the Foundation, Georgia students went on field trips and participated in quality educational programming at Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank, The Children's Museum of Atlanta, The Hudgens Fine Arts Center, The Aurora Theater and the premier arts center of the Southeast, The Woodruff.
Grant funding and corporate contributions are at work to end the cycle of domestic violence and poverty through programs and services at Rainbow Village, the Partnership against Domestic Violence, the Atlanta Children's Shelter Gateway and the Gwinnett Children's Shelter.
The Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia and the Georgia Center for Nonprofits expanded services to support other nonprofits - enabling those nonprofits to improve and expand their program offerings to the community.
Primerica has been the Presenting Sponsor of the world's number one Relay for Life event since 2013. Through Primerica's continued corporate funding and employee fundraising, Primerica was named a Relay for Life Gwinnett Top Corporate Team for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Primerica was given the 2012 Strategic Partner Award.
Thousands of students in Georgia benefited from grant funding for education. Funding has supported the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, The Gwinnett County Public School Foundation, the Gwinnett Tech Foundation, the Georgia Council for Economic Education and Communities in Schools of Atlanta.
Funding from the Foundation helped provide safe housing, life and workforce skills, educational support, mentoring and mental health counseling to foster children in Georgia. Grantees serving foster children include The Orange Duffel Bag Initiative, CHRIS Kids and Foster Cares.
Support for the nonprofit Year Up, provided training for the workforce of today. This training enables urban youth to enter corporate internships "job ready". Eighty-five percent of Year Up participants are offered permanent employment at the end of their internship.
The USO, Our Military Kids and Wounded Warrior Project all received grant funding to support those who are the most deserving - our Veterans and their families.
Funding from The Primerica Foundation supports Junior Achievement's efforts to serve every middle grade student from the Gwinnett County Public Schools with interactive learning at the JA Discovery Center in Gwinnett.
Support for Youth Enrichment and Mentoring programs included funding for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, the YMCA, Cool Girls, The Boy Scouts and The Girl Scouts.
Primerica and The Primerica Foundation Team Up With Junior Achievement in Finance Park
Ribbon Cutting of Primerica's Store Front in JA Finance Park
Primerica and The Primerica Foundation, alongside more than 30 other top businesses in Gwinnett County, have partnered with Junior Achievement of Georgia (JA) in a project that will impact every middle school student in Gwinnett County!
The JA Discovery Center in Gwinnett is designed to simulate the Gwinnett County business community. Each of these businesses has a physical store front - a replica of their actual business. The two parts of the JA Discovery Center include Biz Town and Finance Park. Primerica's store front is in Finance Park. Students participate in "real-life" simulations and activities that teach them real-life lessons about financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career readiness.
To understand the impact of this project, 25,000 middle school students, all sixth and eighth graders in the Gwinnett County Public School System, will have the opportunity to participate in JA's Discovery Center.
