The Primerica Foundation works with approximately 100 nonprofit and community organizations annually, who help families and individuals in need. City of Refuge and The Primerica Foundation’s partnership began in 2018 with grant funding for the nonprofit’s Eden Shelter and Workforce Innovation Hub. 

“Primerica is pleased to support City of Refuge, and the critical work they do to help families in crisis,” said Kathryn Kieser, Chief Reputation Officer and Chair of The Primerica Foundation. “Our commitment to the communities we serve extends to every area of our business from financial education to assisting vulnerable populations who need us most.
