In the Community


At Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®), we set the standard when it comes to charitable giving — acting responsibly and with integrity is nothing new to us. Our award-winning corporate social responsibility (CSR) program is a perfect example of how fostering empathy in an organization can result in an outpouring of social good.

Our commitment to contributing to the social and economic well-being of the communities in which we are an employer is unwavering. Our associates fuel our desire to support local nonprofits that are dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and seniors.

Jackson National Community Fund

Through the Jackson National Community Fund (JNCF), we invest in the primary communities in which we live and work — Lansing, Michigan; Denver, Colorado; Chicago, Illinois; and Nashville, Tennessee. Corporate donations and sponsorships are directed to nonprofits, community enrichment programs and institutions of higher learning, with a particular focus on organizations, programs and events dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and seniors. Some of our premier charitable partners from across the country include the Alzheimer's Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs, Junior Achievement, March of Dimes and the Ronald McDonald House.

Jackson in Action

Our associates are involved in the company's charitable efforts every step of the way. Our commitment to giving goes beyond cutting a check — we empower associates to take action by organizing multiple volunteer opportunities each month. We roll up our sleeves and work alongside the nonprofits we support. In addition to their time, associates benefit from a 2-to-1 company match on their monetary donations to select children and senior-focused charities, up to a maximum of $25,000 per associate per year.

Charitable Grants

Charitable organizations in the Lansing, Denver, Chicago or Nashville areas that are interested in applying for a grant or sponsorship from Jackson are encouraged to complete and submit the online JNCF grant application. Jackson directs the majority of its funding to nonprofit charitable organizations that benefit children or seniors in those communities in which Jackson operates. The JNCF Advisory Committee, comprised of associates from across the company, will provide recommendations for funding to the JNCF Executive Forum each quarter. Please use the dates below to determine which funding cycle best suits your needs.
