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

Volunteers Choose

Volunteers Choose is a program that 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 financial gift. This year, we are proud to recognize the following organizations:
  • Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Swindon, UK

  • Zornroschen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
  • Casa Hogar Imperio de Amor, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
  • Make a Wish International
  • Westborough Senior Center, Westborough, MA
  • Families in Transition, Manchester, NH
  • A Child's Haven, Spartanburg, SC
  • Cancer Association of Spartanburg and Cherokee Inc., Spartanburg, SC
  • Naruse Academic Scholarship


 

Naruse Academic Scholarship

Each year, AFL awards a four-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.

AFL's culture is indicative of our community outreach. Our Community Advisory Board provides insight to help us direct our efforts for the greatest impact. Our management team is connected with nonprofit boards in our communities and understands the need. Our associates are connected with our community and eager to help.

What's more? The results are in and we know we have made a difference! Yet there is still work to do and more lives to change. We are ready!


Sponsorships

AFL invests in events year-round that support requests from associates and non-profit organizations. Whether AFL sponsors a child's sports or a fundraising event, we proudly support our community.

 

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)
