Our focus on helping people return to the fullness of their lives extends beyond our business interests and into the cities and towns where we live, work and play. Unum has long recognized the importance of providing philanthropic support in the communities we call home and encourage our employees to do so, as well. In 2004 we contributed more than $4.5 million to not-for-profit organizations across the United States and United Kingdom through locally made-decisions in our home cities. Through our matching gift program, we matched an additional $896,000 of donations made by North American employees to local organizations and schools. This dedication to helping our communities reach their highest potential is a natural extension of our mission to help our claimants return to the fullness of their lives.
In so many ways, and in all that we do, Unum is working to make a difference...one person at a time.
