Other Initiatives

Imagine contributing even more!

AFL has a corporate culture of giving back. In fact, Community Engagement is one of AFL’s core values. Additional community outreach initiatives include:

Disaster Relief

Our associates understand the need to reach out and help our communities. From hurricanes to earthquakes to tsunamis, AFL’s Community Outreach Program has matched the donations of associates when disaster strikes. AFL has reached out after these most recent disasters:
  • Hurricane Sandy

  • Hurricane Katrina

  • Haitian Earthquake

  • Japanese earthquake and resulting tsunami (American Red Cross)

Volunteers Choose

Volunteers Choose is a program which recognizes the volunteer efforts of AFL associates who participated in volunteer programs during the previous year. Volunteers vote for a nonprofit organization in their area to receive this annual gift. This year, we are proud to recognize the following organizations:
  • Hope Center for Children, Spartanburg, SC

  • Turning Point, Monroe, NC

  • The Quinn House, Lawrenceville, GA

  • Lowell General Hospital Cancer Center, Lowell MA

  • Centro de Atencion Multiple (CAM), Monterrey, Mexico

  • Dressability, Swindon, U.K.


AFL invests in events year-round with sponsorships that support non-profit organizations and local chambers of commerce as well as requests from our associates.

Naruse Academic Scholarship

Each year, AFL awards a 4-year scholarship to the son or daughter of a North American-based AFL associate entering a college or university. The scholarship was named in memory of Toshihide Naruse, Managing Director of Fujikura, AFL’s parent company. Mr. Naruse’s contributions to AFL were significant, and because of his personal interest in higher education, we are proud to honor his memory with this scholarship.

Champions for a Cause
AFL periodically surveys our associates asking for input on what causes matter most to them. Our latest survey revealed that associates wanted to see the company take a more active role in cancer prevention, support and research. AFL has responded to this request with sponsorships, charity walks/runs and grants. 

Imagine the difference we can make.
