American Equity is Committed to Giving Back 

American Equity’s core values align with serving and contributing to the communities where we live and work. We are committed to giving back and take great pride in serving others. Our employees have a long-standing tradition as active members of the community. 

In addition to opportunities through company sponsorships and programs, such as Meals from the Heartland, Toys for Tots and United Way, we give our employees paid volunteer time off to give back to the causes that mean the most to them.

We work to strengthen our community through financial support and volunteer time at a wide range of educational, health, social service, cultural, civic and environmental organizations. Our philanthropic efforts are more significant than money and more important than the time we donate. Our contributions are investments in the future of many lives and communities.
