At Natixis Investment Managers we believe it’s our civic responsibility to help improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. A robust philanthropic initiative, coupled with our community involvement program, Together for Better®, combines our organizational resources, our employees’ dedication, talents, and passions, together with the collective power of our community partners to fulfill this important mission.
We focus our efforts particularly on ensuring educational access and enhancement, coupled with career-related resources to help provide individuals with the necessary tools to achieve their own personal success. This mission corresponds with our business goal of helping investors to live better financial lives. We furthermore support increasing diversity within our industry, and we view many of our partnerships as a step in that direction.
A Comprehensive Approach
We believe our multi-faceted approach to giving is distinctive in that we give in the broadest sense – via financial support and actively giving of our skills, talents, and most importantly, our time.
Our collaboration with the core charitable partners listed below – local non-profit human service providers, housing shelters, volunteer groups, community support, educational programming, and schools – aims to assist the most vulnerable populations. We work to enhance educational experiences and opportunities by providing direct support in mentoring and reading programs, supplying computer equipment, undertaking improvement projects, funding scholarships for students, and supporting career skills and success in various forms.
Employee Involvement & Leadership
A fundamental component of our philanthropic model is our employees’ collaborative project work, being directly involved with our “community partners.” A dedicated team of Natixis “Champions” partners with each organization’s staff to spearhead a unique road map of solutions. A tailored annual plan ensures ongoing and changing needs are addressed, combining the appropriate mix of financial contributions – both corporate and employee – in-kind donations, employee expertise, resources and networks, mentoring, staff training, and more.
We have worked to create a philanthropic model that engages and collaborates with our community partners to ensure Natixis’ efforts are aligned with their goals and maximized to generate the strongest results possible. We believe an open and interactive working relationship enables us to provide the kind of direct and specific support that these organizations need from their corporate partners.
