How American Income Life Gives Back

At American Income Life, we help Make Tomorrow Better for those in need.

We believe in investing in the communities where we live, work, and visit by giving back through the Make Tomorrow Better giving initiative. Our commitment doesn’t stop there; we also participate in hands-on service activities whenever possible. Giving back is not just what we do, it’s who we are.

AIL gave back more than $471,000 through the Make Tomorrow Better initiative in 2020, and more than $2.78 million in the last five years (2016-2020).*
