Helping people is an important part of our culture at The Principal®. That's why the company, its employees and the Principal Financial Group Foundation, Inc., work together to give back in a variety of ways.
Our charitable giving is based on a simple philosophy: by targeting our contributions toward entities that have the greatest impact on our employees and marketers, customers, shareholders and businesses, we are able to make the greatest difference.
This section highlights stories from our five main areas of giving:
Civic, community and the environment
We donate to relief efforts when disasters strike communities where we have a heavy employee/customer presence.
Gifts have included everything from office furniture and supplies to computers, carpeting and even temporary warehouse/office space.
Through our matching gift program, qualified employee/agent gifts made to eligible K-12 education programs, higher education programs and United Way are matched by the company, increasing the impact made by each individual donor.
If you’re a nonprofit organization in need of support (financial, in-kind donations, volunteers) in one of the communities in which we operate, request it here and we’ll do our best to help meet your needs.
