2013 Corporate Responsibility
Making a positive difference in the lives we touch is more than our vision, it's our legacy; one that is rooted in more than 165 years of service and dedication to giving back. And one that we're continuing to build as we share our time, skills and resources with organizations and causes in the communities we call home.
Unum employees in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland share a personal commitment to serving our communities. Each year, employees volunteer with charitable organizations or community projects of their choice. And when an employee participates in a qualified charitable event, we offer a $50 grant to the nonprofit in recognition of the employee's involvement. Through our matching gifts program, we also offer direct support of our employees' philanthropic contributions to qualified organizations. Each calendar year, we match employee gifts to eligible charitable and community programs for donations ranging from $50 to an aggregate maximum of $7,500. Gifts to nonprofit organizations are matched on $1-for-$1 basis, while gifts to qualified educational institutions are matched on a $2-for-$1 basis.
