Profits with a Purpose
NBC Sports anchor Jimmy Roberts reveals the powerful connection between health and wealth at American Century Investments®.
Profits with a purpose is more than a mantra. It's a reflection of our unique ownership structure. Through the generosity of American Century Investments' founder, the late James "Jim" Stowers, Jr., and his wife Virginia, more than 40% of the firms profits are distributed to an endowment that supports the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and BioMed Valley Discoveries. Since 2000, total dividend payments to the endowment have exceeded $1 billion.
Three organizations aspire to fulfill our founder Jim Stowers' vision of having a for-profit company fund lifesaving research. It's the ultimate example of how financial success can be a force for good.
