Sun Life’s Purpose is to help Clients achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives. Our philanthropic support is one way we are bringing our Purpose to life. We focus on driving measurable social impact for those most in need.

Sun Life created the Team Up Against Diabetes grant program to help grassroots organizations seeking funding for diabetes programming in their local communities. Grant recipients are chosen each year by a panel of experts from Sun Life and business partners. The panel reviews the applications and determines the organizations that have demonstrated innovative approaches to diabetes support, education, and broadening access to nutrition and health services.

Since the program began in 2016, Sun Life has donated over US$1.7 million in funding to organizations throughout the U.S. In 2022, Sun Life awarded US$350,000 in funding via the grant program to six charities.
