giving back

We hope to make the world a better place by giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

2015 Giving Back Day with Shanghai QingCongquan Training Center for Children with Special Needs

Our annual Giving Back Day, which originated in 2008 when our China office colleagues dedicated time and resources to help victims of the Sichuan earthquake zone, is highlighted below.

Giving Back Reports

Our Giving Back report debuted in 2011 as a testament to how those of us at American Securities, and our portfolio companies, live our value of Giving Back. The examples contained in the reports below of individual contributions and Firm events only describe a portion of the volunteer commitments and philanthropic activities that the American Securities family undertakes in an effort to make the world a better place.
