Additionally, employees contributed 10,400 hours in volunteer service, 90% higher than 2021 volunteer hours.

    “Our employees have always stepped up for our communities, and I’m proud and humbled to see we’ve so dramatically increased our volunteer hours from 2021,” said Esfand Dinshaw, chairman and chief executive officer at Sammons Financial Group. “A culture of giving is deeply woven into our DNA. Even though I know this to be true, I’m continually impressed by how our employees seem to give more and more support to our communities.”

    As an employee-owned company, Sammons Financial Group supports a broad range of local charitable organizations tackling issues and needs that its employees are passionate about. In 2022, the company supported organizations focused on diversity and inclusion, homelessness, education, hunger, and children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and specialized healthcare needs.

    “It’s incredible to see the passion and excitement when our teams come together to make a difference in our communities,” said Tom Nucaro, chair of Sammons Financial Group’s Des Moines-area community involvement committee. “While many of our donations are allocated at the corporate-level, we also have opportunities for our employees to nominate charities and direct funds to the organizations that are most impactful to them.”

    • Chicago, Illinois: Chicago-based charities received nearly $400,000 in 2022. Key partners included Cal’s All-Star Angel Foundation, Marillac St. Vincent Family Services, Deborah’s Place, The Boulevard, and various charities through the Big Hearts Program.
