The support of the insurance industry that started with Covid-19 continues through 2021.
The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s (IICF) Southeast division has raised more than $560,000 to support 21 nonprofit beneficiaries who are facing challenging times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent winter storms. The IICF is also raising funds to help feed children and families that are facing hunger because of the pandemic.
The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. raised $1.5 million for United Way and hundreds of other nonprofit organizations across the country through an employee giving campaign. The contribution represents the largest donation the company’s charitable foundation and its employees have ever made through the annual giving program.
The USAA Foundation, Inc. has announced a $350,000 commitment to help Texas residents recover from February’s historic winter storm.
Texas Mutual Insurance Company: In response to the winter storm, Texas Mutual Insurance Company donated $100,000 to six organizations on the frontlines providing Texans with basic needs like food, water and shelter. The Coalition for the Homeless in Houston was one of the recipients. Before and during the storm, the organization advocated for people experiencing homelessness to ensure their needs were met in response to this emergency. Their teams helped to transport people without shelter to warming centers. https://www.houston.org/news/partnership-members-respond-winter-storm
