We care about the health of the people in our communities. We champion local efforts that make a positive difference in the lives of others, form long-term partnerships, and make the most of our sponsorship and investment dollars.

In 2012, Aetna and the Aetna Foundation awarded more than $14.6 million to nonprofit organizations. Our employees, retirees and directors donated an additional $6.8 million. Moreover, Aetna employees consistently volunteer in their local communities. Across Aetna, there are 54 active Aetna Volunteer Councils in 46 cities, representing 6,000 Aetna employees as well as countless national partnerships. In 2012, our employees donated more than 380,000 hours of their time.
