25 Years of Building More Equitable Communities

This year, the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award celebrates a milestone event. For 25 years, we have annually honored outstanding nonprofits from cities and towns across the U.S. that have shown exemplary leadership in partnering with public, private and social sector organizations to build a more cohesive community for the greater good.

“As we reflect on the impact that the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award has had on communities across the U.S. over the past 25 years, we are pleased to know that all of the partnerships we’ve recognized since 1996 have been committed to creating innovative, effective and crucial solutions to help those in need,” said John R. Greed, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mutual of America Financial Group.

In communities large and small, these vital partnerships are helping to address pressing issues in areas ranging from access to quality education, healthcare and jobs, to social and racial injustice, poverty, food insecurity, homelessness and more. Each Community Partnership Award winner is demonstrating how nonprofit organizations are leading the way to a more equitable, compassionate and just America.

We’re Honored

Mutual of America is delighted to have received industry recognition on many occasions for documentary videos we produced to highlight the amazing work of Community Partnership Award national award-winning programs. Most recently, the Company received two gold Telly Awards, in the categories of Social Video General-Social Impact and Non-Broadcast General-Social Issues, for our 2019 video about the Survivor Advocate Program, which addresses the issue of human trafficking in the U.S. The Telly Award annually honors excellence in video and television across all screens.
