Our Focus Areas

Our goal is to have a positive impact on our communities through the power of our giving. We can only do this because of the strength of the relationships we have with our nonprofit partners. We are proud to invest in them to support their missions and their passions. We are also proud of the legacy of Pacific Life, its employees, and our participation in helping make our communities healthier, safer, and stronger. 

Supporting communities where Pacific Life employees live and work, including Orange County, California; Omaha, Nebraska; and Lynchburg, Virginia, Pacific Life Foundation grants are focused on the areas of arts and culture; civic, community and economic development; environment; education; and health and human services. National grants are focused on the areas of food security, disaster relief, financial stability, and the environment, specifically ocean health and marine mammals.

Red Cross Disaster Responder Program

The Red Cross responds to more than 60,000 disasters across the country every year, providing comfort and hope to people during what can be the worst days of their lives. Large disasters like hurricanes, floods and wildfires are increasing in frequency and intensity, resulting in more displaced, vulnerable people who need support. ­­­­­­Since 2000, the Pacific Life Foundation has donated more than $4.1 million to support disaster response and preparedness efforts through the Red Cross.

Since 2022, the Pacific Life Foundation is a proud member of the Red Cross Disaster Responder Program. By making an advanced contribution, the Pacific Life Foundation helps ensure the Red Cross is prepared to meet the needs of people affected by disasters big and small across the U.S.
