Our mission – “We secure your future” – doesn’t stop at managing risk in retirement.

For Allianz, it also means helping to secure the future of our community by reducing barriers to economic inclusion. We do this by providing charitable grants to nonprofit organizations that help people achieve financial stability, sustainability, and security throughout their lifetime.

Allianz provides grants in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area. Grants are typically one-year commitments ranging from $50,000-$75,000.
