“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give”
At Pan-American Life we are proud of our heritage of giving, embodied by our employees who share our core value of improving and supporting each of the communities we serve. We currently direct our giving to charities in New Orleans working to effect positive change in the local community, organizations contributing to the local arts community and those enhancing public safety, as well as charities working to improve the lives of U.S. Hispanics. Additionally, we support a variety of not-for-profit organizations throughout the Americas, in the communities where our Pan-American Life family lives and works.
