We're committed to the betterment of all our tomorrows.
At Transamerica, we believe our responsibilities go beyond our corporate walls. That's why we created the Aegon Transamerica Foundation (the "Foundation") in 1994. Through a combination of financial grants and the volunteer commitment of our employees, we support non-profit organizations focused on the education, health and well-being of the communities where we live and work.

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, including venues for artistic expression.
Civic & Community: Programs that strive to promote community development, encourage civic leadership, and enhance work and business opportunities.
Education & Literacy: Programs with a mission to provide knowledge and to expand individuals’ capabilities, especially in the areas of financial literacy.
Health & Welfare: Programs committed to improving the condition of the human body through nutrition, housing for the homeless, disease prevention and more.
United Way: In addition to leading an annual campaign, employees' contributions are matched by at least 50%.
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.
In 2012, the Foundation contributed $4,594,667.
