AAG Earns Civic 50 Orange County Award for Corporate Citizenship 1

Retirement Solutions Leader Honored by Orange County Business Journal, OneOC and Points of Light

ORANGE, Calif. (Oct. 24, 2018) – American Advisors Group (AAG), a leading provider of  home equity solutions for retirement, has been selected as a 2018 Civic 50 Orange County honoree for the second consecutive year. The Civic 50 Orange County, presented by the Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ), in partnership with OneOC, honors the 50 most community-minded companies in Orange County as determined by True Impact’s adapted national Civic 50 survey.

“It’s an honor to be named as one of the top civic-minded companies in Orange County,” said Lauren Willis, director of corporate engagement for AAG and the AAG Foundation. “This award really belongs to our employees, who generously devote their time and energy to support our community outreach programs. It reflects the thousands of hours AAG employees spend delivering meals, writing cards, and handing out food to seniors in need.”

AAG was selected as an honoree based on its exceptional demonstration of OneOC’s four dimensions for community engagement: investment, integration, institutionalization, and impact. AAG’s charitable efforts are led by the AAG Foundation, which supports numerous causes, including the fight against hunger and isolation of elder Americans, aiding victims of human trafficking through Willow International, and providing care for AAG employees in need.

Through the AAG Foundation, the organization makes consistent community contributions by empowering employees with volunteer time off, supplying monetary donations, and hosting fundraising events, such as AAG’s annual comedy night for charity. In 2017, AAG employees clocked more than 950 volunteer hours delivering food and conducting safety checks for seniors through the Meals on Wheels program. AAG volunteers also hosted events at the Orange County Senior Center and participated in greeting card writing groups for local seniors.

The Civic 50 OC List and Special Report was published on October 15, 2018 in the Orange County Business Journal. To view the complete list, go to: OneOC OC Civic 50 2018 Honorees..
