Aon’s commitment to social impact
In every region of the world, Aon works to mitigate risk and improve the health and vitality of individuals and communities at large. By thoughtfully leveraging what’s uniquely Aon – our insights, analytics and talented people – we strive to enrich the lives of people around the world.
That’s why our firm-wide community involvement efforts focus on risk, education, health and retirement.
Risk: Reduce volatility and build more resilient communities
Education: Support access to education and workforce readiness
Health: Improve health and wellbeing
Retirement: Promote economic stability for aging populations
Investing in our Communities
Through our financial contributions, volunteer efforts and matching funds, we support nonprofit organizations around the world that align with our social impact pillars.
Altogether Aon foundations and charitable funds in Australia, Brazil, France, India, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States contributed more than USD 11M to 2,100 organizations in 2019.
Global Partnership Spotlight: The Red Cross and the Red Crescent
Each year, our offices provide support to more than 75 different Red Cross/Red Crescent locations around the world. Aon’s Annual Disaster Giving Program, in which Aon provides USD 500,000 to the Red Cross each year, helps ensure Red Cross responders can be on the scene of a disaster at a moment’s notice to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to people in need. Our colleagues also support regular blood drives at Aon offices. In the past 10 years, we have contributed more USD 6.5M to the Red Cross.
Employee Giving and Volunteerism
Our colleagues represent the best of Aon by demonstrating a commitment to service that extends beyond our day-to-day business responsibilities. Aligned under our firm’s focus on risk, education, retirement and health, our colleagues put their passion and expertise to work in responding to the needs of their communities, combining charitable giving and colleague volunteerism to invest in our communities. Each year, Aon employees devote thousands of hours of service to charitable organizations and educational institutions around the world.
While volunteer activities take place throughout the year to support our key partners, one of the most meaningful days for colleagues each year is Aon United Day for Communities, our firm’s annual global service day. During 2019 Aon United Day for Communities, more than 8,800 colleagues in 49 countries served 350 community partners and invested more than 34,000 volunteer hours in improving their communities.
From Aguascalientes to Zurich, Aon colleagues participated in blood drives, packing food boxes for the hungry, facility improvements to child care centers, park and beach clean ups, building houses, and providing supportive services or recreational opportunities to seniors and people with disabilities.
