Be The Change: On Mission – Empowering Our Disadvantaged Communities Today For A Sustainable Tomorrow
MetLife Foundation is committed to providing quality, affordable financial tools and know-how to those most in need. In 2013, the Foundation made a $200 million five-year commitment to financial inclusion…providing every individual seeking help the resources they need to succeed. The Foundation partners with local nonprofit organizations who provide the much needed services through local community initiatives, whether it is the tools to help manage their finances, or life’s basic necessities – from employment opportunities to educational certifications, or from food to shelter.
Working in collaboration with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation or LISC, the two have partnered to help struggling men and women pursue their goals, such as finding a better job or improving their financial lives — from building credit to sound habits around savings and budgeting. LISC’s Financial Opportunity Centers, funded in part by MetLife Foundation, are helping working mothers from New York to Los Angeles pursue more from life.
