NBC Sports Features The Stowers Institute for Medical Research
American Century Investments® President and Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Thomas speaks with NBC Sports' Jimmy Roberts about the generosity and vision of the company's late founder James Stowers Jr. and his wife Virginia. The couple gave their ownership stake in the company to the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, resulting in more than 40% of American Century Investments' profits being used to fund important gene-based research. Since the year 2000, more than $1 billion dollars in dividends have been distributed to the Stowers Institute.
