Community Outreach

Mutual Friends

Mutual Friends, American Century Investments® employee volunteer program, supports charitable organizations by pooling the time and talents of our people to improve the communities where we work through volunteerism and drives. Events are designed for both individual employees to participate as well as for groups to enjoy team-building opportunities.

Past activities include building homes for underserved populations, preparing and serving dinner for pediatric cancer patients, community clean-up efforts, blood drives, caring for animals, classroom education and collection drives.

Support in the Fight Against Cancer

About one in every eight women will have invasive breast cancer sometime in her life, according to the American Cancer Society. Since 2011, American Century Investments has supported Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a noncompetitive 5K walk sponsored by the American Cancer Society which celebrates survivorship. As a Flagship sponsor, we rally our employees to get involved in the walk and raise funds. The event highlights our commitment, through the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, to help those facing cancer.

In 2016, company and employee contributions to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer, research, advocacy and patient support totaled over $90,000.
