The Aegon Transamerica Foundation is also funding an endowed scholarship at Carey, which will be available beginning in fall 2021, and is intended for students from underrepresented communities.
Since its establishment in 1994, the Aegon Transamerica Foundation has supported nonprofit organizations that promote the arts and culture, civic engagement and community development, education and financial literacy, health and human services, inclusion and diversity, and the overall wellbeing of the communities where Transamerica’s employees live and work.
“Our purpose at Transamerica is to help people achieve a lifetime of financial security, which is why we are thrilled to support Carey Business School’s Summer Business Academy and the Leading a Diverse Society Mentoring Program,” said Karyn Polak, General Counsel at Transamerica and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Aegon Transamerica Foundation. “Providing more opportunity in the communities we serve—while enhancing diversity and inclusion in our industry—is an effort we care deeply about. Transamerica is proud to help inspire the next generation of business leaders and to help underrepresented students build the business experience they need to thrive.”
In 2020, Transamerica donated over $8 million to nonprofit organizations, including approximately $1.8 million toward programs that provide and promote education and personal development opportunities, especially in the areas of financial literacy.
