DULUTH, Ga. -- May 24, 2012

Twenty-six Metro Atlanta and Georgia nonprofits received a total of over
$600,000 in 2011 through grant funding from The Primerica Foundation, the new
philanthropic arm of Duluth-based Primerica.

“Primerica has operated in the Atlanta Metro area for 35 years, and during
that time we have always believed in giving back to the community, both in the
forms of grants and as well as through the extraordinary volunteer efforts of
our employees. The Primerica Foundation, however, is new and was formed as
part of our restructuring as an independent company after our 2010 initial
public offering,” said Rick Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-CEO of
Primerica. “I am excited that, through our new foundation, we will be able to
continue our proud tradition of helping nonprofits that have such a positive
impact on the Metro Atlanta community.”

“Primerica’s Foundation and community mission is focused on helping people who
are in need gain the skills and confidence that help them become
self-sufficient. We have been recognized as a top corporate charitable
contributor in Gwinnett County and have received numerous community awards.
Through company grants combined with the incredible spirit of volunteerism of
our 1,700 employees, Primerica is among the top 10 companies supporting the
annual Gwinnett County Relay for Life. This year we are elated to be the
Presenting Sponsor for the 2012 American Cancer Society’s Gwinnett Relay for
Life,” said Karen Fine Saltiel, Chairman of the Primerica Foundation and
Executive Vice President of Primerica.

“Primerica has been the most awesome corporate partner over the past 15
years,” said Ellen Gerstein, Executive Director of the Gwinnett Coalition for
Health and Human Services. “Primerica exemplifies what is meant by being a
great corporate citizen.”
