Aetna in your community

We care about the health of the people in our communities. We champion local efforts that make a positive difference in the lives of others, form long-term partnerships, and make the most of our sponsorship and investment dollars.

In 2015, our employees, retirees and directors contributed more than $7.4 million and more than 430,000 volunteer hours to nonprofit organizations in communities where we live and work. The Aetna Foundation amplified this generosity with matching grants, bringing the total economic impact to these communities to more than $20 million. Having awarded nearly $480 million in grants and sponsorships since 1980, Aetna and the Aetna Foundation have established a long track record for helping to build healthier communities through philanthropy.
