Associates. Community. Together.

In 2017, Great-West Financial® and Empower Retirement introduced ACT — Associates. Community. Together. The community impact program empowers our associates to support causes that are closest to their hearts through volunteer service and financial contributions. We amplify their impact by matching donations, funding volunteer time and supporting collaborative philanthropy. Together, we are making a meaningful impact in the communities where we live and work.
