Pacific Life Volunteers were out in force last year providing invaluable volunteer support in our local communities. Throughout the year, 2,300 volunteers across the globe lived out Pacific Life’s Community core value, dedicating their time to give back to those in need. Whether volunteering at a company-sponsored Week of Service event, volunteering for their local food bank as part of a Volunteer Action Team, participating in their child’s PTA and recording their Individual Volunteer Activity, or volunteering as a department, there was no shortage of service by Pacific Life employee heroes and their loved ones.


Week of Service Events

The Pacific Life Foundation hosted three Week of Service events, where employees participated onsite in service projects. In the spring, 800+ Pacific Life Volunteers worked together to assemble 5,500 STEAM kits that were donated to schools in our local communities. In support of the Pacific Life Foundation’s food security initiative, over 135,000 meals were packed by Pacific Life employee volunteers for children and families in our local communities and around the world. 

Rounding out the year and in conjunction with our annual United Way campaign, 780+ employees participated in participated in various projects across our three U.S. offices, packing more than 19,200 kits for individuals in need, such as hygiene kits for homelessness families, or financial literacy kits to provide local youth and parents with tools they need for basic money management and budgeting.

Environmental Cleanup Efforts

Throughout 2023, 11 global cleanups and activities were held across six countries to have a positive impact on our environment. Through cleanup efforts, 435+ of trash and microplastics were cleared from waterways by Pacific Life Volunteers around the world.

After-Hours & Individual Volunteerism

Nearly 80 Pacific Life employees around the word volunteered 25 or more hours in 2023, with 19 employees volunteering 100+ hours. 4,200+ hours were recorded as part of the Pacific Life Foundation’s Individual Volunteer Hours program. Through the Pacific Life Foundation’s volunteer match program, employees were able to request a $10 Volunteer Match grant for every qualified Individual Volunteer Hour recorded, up to $1,000 annually.

Community-Focused Department Events

Pacific Life department leaders also engaged their teams in 45+ Department Teambuilding Community Events elevating employee engagement globally by including a charitable activity as part of their department meetings and conferences. These activities included offsite food packing projects, backpack assembly projects, a mentorship day at a local Boys & Girls Club, and many more!

Enterprise Actuarial partnered with the Pacific Life Foundation for a team building event to build bikes for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, which was not only a fun time for both employees and club youth, but also a significant component in bonding our new team together. And at the 2023 Actuarial Conference our Pacific Life actuarial community worked together with the Pacific Life Foundation to build 300 Think Together kits! As I look ahead, I see a global company which is grounded in its commitment to the communities where our clients and employees live, and can say I am proud to be part of this Pacific Life family.
