Empower Retirement is supporting local coronavirus relief efforts in communities across the country where Empower associates work and live.

Empower has committed $250,000 to support local coronavirus relief efforts in high-needs sectors such as food insecurities, blood shortages, medical efforts, and elderly and homeless populations.

Among the organizations Empower is supporting are the Childrens Hospital of Colorado, the Food Bank of the Rockies, Codman Square Health Center of Boston, the Food Bank Network of Somerset County in New Jersey, the Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee and Harvesters Community Food Network serving northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas.

In addition, through the companys Associates Community Together (ACT) program, Empower is also doubling the financial donations of its associates to the charitable organizations they are supporting.

Its been tremendous to hear our associates asking how they can help their neighbors and community members in this uncertain and daunting time, said Edmund F. Murphy III, Empower Retirement President and CEO. Our associates have always been community-minded and are keenly aware of how this pandemic and its effects on the economy have overwhelmed their communities.

Over the years Empower associates have volunteered in countless nonprofit organizations across the country and know first-hand where and what the needs are. Thats why Empower is doubling their financial contributions to the non-profit organizations they know and love, Murphy said.

The company employs more than 6,200 people with approximately 2,700 employed in its headquarters in Greenwood Village, Colorado. In addition to its metro Denver headquarters, Empower has corporate offices in Kansas City, Milwaukee, the Boston area, Somerset, NJ and Bangalore India.

Empower launched its ACT program in 2016 to support the volunteer and giving efforts of its associates. Through the program, associates are provided 16 hours a year of paid volunteer time off from work. Empower also matches money donated to nonprofit organizations by associates of up to $5,000 annually. Since its inception, Empower and its employees had given $11 million to nonprofit organizations across the country.

Our ACT program is designed to amplify our employees commitments to their communities by matching their contributions, Murphy said. We hope our combined effort can help those hit hardest during this unprecedented economic time.
