MassMutual Financial Group launched Mutual Impact, an employee-driven community investment program in 2015. Its goal: to deepen employee engagement, build direct relationships with community partners and harness our collective impact by pooling our time, talent and dollars in support of deserving nonprofits. MassMutual Foundation matches all employee contributions dollar-for-dollar, and 100 percent of funds raised go directly to the nonprofit community.
Mutual Impact is as much about the collective donation of time, talent and passion as it is about dollars. As part of the annual grant application process, nonprofits are asked to outline their volunteer needs in addition to their funding requests. MassMutual employees are invited to volunteer with grantees through traditional event-based and skills-based projects. These opportunities may be site-specific or virtual, offering a range of support to our nonprofit partners.
In 2017, the generosity of our employees combined with a MassMutual Foundation match enabled Mutual Impact to give out over $1.1 million in grants to 21 nonprofits working to move the needle on key challenges in the communities where we work.
