Through employee engagement in our corporate philanthropic initiatives across our global offices, we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. The AMG Charitable Foundation amplifies the efforts of our employees through meaningful donations to a variety of non-profit organizations and community programs globally, with a focus on supporting educational, cultural, environmental, health, social, and other charitable initiatives.
We take pride in supporting the charitable work and contributions of our employees, many of whom serve on non-profit boards or make significant contributions as volunteers within their local communities. AMG has implemented company-supported time off to encourage employees in their charitable endeavors and matches employee donations to eligible non-profit institutions. AMG has an employee gift matching program and a volunteer matching initiative, under which AMG will match employee volunteering hours at eligible non-profit institutions with a monetary grant to the applicable organization.
As part of our ongoing global philanthropic efforts, AMG has committed to incorporate a philanthropic element at all company-sponsored employee social gatherings when possible. In 2023, we completed our third annual “AMG Week of Service” expanding on our “Day of Service” established in 2019. Over the past years, Week of Service projects were organized with non-profits addressing hunger, sustainable agriculture, conservation of endangered landscapes, environmental education, homelessness, and at-risk youth near our global offices. All organizations benefiting from AMG’s Weeks of Service are local to AMG offices, inspiring employees to further pursue independent volunteer projects in their communities.
In 2018, AMG was a cornerstone donor in establishing The Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS at Massachusetts General Hospital, with the goal of advancing scientific research in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and developing effective treatments for people with ALS. AMG’s investment in The Healey AMG Center has already helped to fund a number of research breakthroughs and broaden the availability of treatments globally. In 2022, AMG raised more than $1.7 million in support of charitable organizations providing humanitarian aid to Ukrainians, across individual giving by AMG and Affiliate employees as well as gift-matching by The AMG Charitable Foundation and AMG. And, in recent years, AMG donated more than $1 million to COVID-19 relief efforts, and made substantial contributions to a number of organizations supporting environmental research, conservation, food security, and social equity.
