Victory Capital encourages employees to build strong ties within their community by volunteering with local organizations to make a positive impact. Every calendar year, all full-time employees may use up to 16 hours of paid time off for community volunteer activities.
While this has been difficult to do in-person during the pandemic, our employees continue to find opportunities to give back to their local communities.
Offering support where and when it’s needed
In 2021, Victory Capital worked with the American Red Cross to benefit people affected by winter storms in Texas and nationwide in February, Hurricane Ida in August, and wildfires that raged in several states throughout the summer.
With the help of our colleagues, our CEO David Brown, a Victory Capital corporate donation, and matching gifts, we raised tens of thousands of dollars for disaster relief.
Supporting education and the military
Throughout 2021, we continued to launch new educational content through our multimedia investor
learning center aimed at service members transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This included new installments of our inspirational video series, Road to Victory, which showcases powerful stories of different veterans? financial journeys. And we continued to add new educational content focused on Military Financial Readiness.
In November, we initiated a new feature within Victory University, entitled Victorious Veterans. The series introduces our employees to veterans who have transitioned to successful careers in academia, business, or the nonprofit world after their military service. It is intended to celebrate their accomplishments and highlight the challenges they faced to achieve them.
Victory Capital thanks all of our veterans and active- duty military for their service to our country. We also give thanks to their families for the sacrifices they make. Victory Capital’s ongoing commitment to the military community and their families includes helping them establish plans for their future financial success. We strive to deliver on that commitment every day.
In 2021, the Victory Capital Scholars Program at Xavier University provided $50,000 of direct financial support to pay student expenses not covered by existing grants and awards. These “gap” scholarships were granted based on need and merit.
As part of our commitment to the military, the Scholars Program offers special consideration to students in the Post-9/11 GI
Bill’s Yellow Ribbon Program.
