Our partnerships

We are proud of our corporate philanthropy partnerships with the Alzheimer's Association®, American Cancer Society® and the American Heart Association®.

Since 2003, CNO and Bankers Life have helped raise nearly $6.6 million for the Alzheimer’s Association® through our Forget Me Not Days® campaign and corporate donations. We are proud supporters of Walk to End Alzheimer’s® and The Longest Day®, which raise funds and awareness for the Association.

CNO and Washington National were proud to support the American Cancer Society with a $100,000 donation in 2021. This contribution benefits the Road to Recovery program, which provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or unable to drive themselves, and nationwide Hope Lodges.

CNO and Colonial Penn were proud to support the American Heart Association with a $75,000 donation in 2021. Associates also participated in the Philadelphia Heart Walk.

Volunteering in our communities

Our Team CNO volunteers take part in more than 30 community service events each year. One of our largest programs is the CNO Afternoon of Service, which takes place across multiple communities and delivers more than 1,000 hours of service to local charities. In 2020 and 2021, we were proud to volunteer virtually.

Engaging associates in giving back

Engaging associates in giving back

Through our CNO Invested in Giving Back® program, we get our associates involved in choosing the community programs to receive charitable donations from the company. Nationwide, 600 associates voted in the 2021 program, and CNO donated $200,000 to charities selected by those associates.
