The ING Foundation is the charitable giving arm of ING U.S. The Foundation awards grants to non-profit organizations addressing a variety of community needs and resources.
ING Foundation grants: Focus areas
In our grant-making, as in our employee volunteer programs and corporate sponsorships, we focus on four primary areas.
Financial literacy. We believe that awareness and understanding of financial matters are the stepping stones to financial empowerment and a more secure future. Financial empowerment speaks to the day-to-day realities of many individuals in communities where we live and work – people who desperately need help gaining the knowledge and skills to build financial security and personal success. The ING Foundation is especially interested in programming that empowers individuals to take control of their financial futures through education, financial literacy, and financial planning, with special attention to the needs of young people and minorities.
Children’s education. We are committed to supporting and improving education for youth in grades K-12, especially children in underserved areas or facing economic disadvantages.
Diversity. We support diversity initiatives that reflect our commitment to equity and fairness in societies around the world, funding selected diversity initiatives.
Environmental sustainability. We are committed to conducting our business responsibly around the globe, and environmental protection is a fundamental part of this commitment.
