At Mutual of America, we believe that every individual deserves a trusted partner on his or her journey toward a more financially secure future. That strong sense of social responsibility can be seen in our customer-first attitude and in the ways we proudly give back to the diverse communities we serve.
Our support of organizations that are working to improve the quality of life in communities across our country is an example of this commitment. Since 1996, the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award annually honors 10 nonprofit organizations that are addressing some of society’s most challenging problems.
The 2018 Community Partnership Award winner and recipient of the Governor Hugh L. Carey Award is the Baltimore City Deconstruction Project. This pioneering collaboration between Humanim, Inc., Baltimore City Housing and the Office of Sustainability, the U.S. Forest Service, the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, and Room & Board, is transforming once-blighted blocks of dilapidated, vacant houses in Baltimore’s inner city into thriving green space.
Mutual of America is also working to strengthen public awareness of social issues through our continuing commitment to public television. The Company is proud to have been a lead sponsor of the documentary film, In Money We Trust?, which premiered on public television in 2018. Based on a bestselling book by Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media, and Elizabeth Ames, the film addresses issues revolving around our nation’s monetary system and its role in the global economy. In addition, the Company continues its support of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), including the PBS NewsHour Weekend and MetroFocus programs.
Our culture of caring runs deep. This year, nearly all of our 1,100 employees participated in charitable events and voluntary giving in their own communities.

For more than 25 years, we have been a flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society® Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk® in New York City, helping to raise more than $3 million. Additionally, we are a top corporate fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Walk MS® and the top overall fundraiser in 2018 for the Concern Spring Run, a run/walk fundraiser for Concern Worldwide.
Together, we will continue to work to strengthen our communities and to provide the tools and resources Americans need in their journey toward a financially secure future for themselves and their families.
