Transamerica Supports Military Families with $100K Donation to Operation Homefront
SAN ANTONIO, TX — The Aegon Transamerica Foundation has generously donated $100,000 to Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit serving America’s military families. Transamerica’s contribution will support Operation Homefront’s highly valued programs that help so many military families who, in the wake of the pandemic and our current economic climate, are struggling to make ends meet.
Thanks to the tremendous commitment of partners and donors like the Aegon Transamerica Foundation, Operation Homefront has been able to serve tens of thousands of military families in need every year, through financial relief, transitional housing, and recurring caregiver support programs. The donation will allow Operation Homefront to continue its important mission to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.
“We are grateful to organizations like the Aegon Transamerica Foundation who share our commitment to helping military families in their time of need because of all they have done for us in our nation’s time of need,” said Margi Kirst, Chief Revenue Officer of Operation Homefront. “Military families are key contributors in their communities. This investment will allow us to build stronger military families which, in turn, builds a stronger America.”
“Transamerica is proud to support Operation Homefront and their mission to help military families thrive,” said Karyn Polak, Chair of the Aegon Transamerica Foundation. “Operation Homefront works tirelessly to provide military families in need with the help they deserve. Their extraordinary efforts align with our values as a company and our commitment to helping people achieve a lifetime of financial security.”
Through the Aegon Transamerica Foundation, Transamerica supports 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 the company’s employees live and work. Last year, the Aegon Transamerica Foundation donated more than $8 million to charitable causes.
