Westfield’s Legacy of Caring Program donates $625,000 to Help Over 100 Nonprofits Across the Country
Webster City, Iowa June 10, 2022 -- The economic fallout from the events of the last two years continues to hit some segments of the population harder than others. It could take years to return to the stability and security people and businesses, including nonprofits, enjoyed before a disaster happened. This spring, the Westfield Insurance Foundation joined together with Town & Country Insurance to donate $5,000 to the Hamilton County Child Care Coalition to help families or businesses stabilize or recover from disasters as part of the Legacy of Caring program. Each year, Westfield’s independent insurance agents are invited to nominate a local nonprofit in their community to receive a donation from the program. Grants were made to over 100 nonprofits in cities within Westfield’s national footprint.
The Westfield Insurance Foundation, an independent private foundation endowed by Westfield, awards the donation as an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses, and communities in times of uncertainty. This year, the Legacy of Caring program donated $625,000 to nonprofits across the country focused on helping under-employed families overcome barriers in education, finance, child care, housing and jobs and recover from disasters.
“Our team at Town & Country Insurance is always seeking out opportunities to volunteer and support our community. Currently we are working to improve the child care situation in our communities” said Doug Follmann, Agency Manager of Town & Country Insurance. “We are proud of and grateful for our collaboration with Westfield, which helps our agency make a more powerful impact on the communities where we live and work.”
“We are so grateful for the generous support of the Hamilton County Child Care Coalition said Cindy Im, Hamilton County Economic Development Director and member of the Child Care Coalition. “The Legacy of Caring grant will have a direct impact on our local child care centers and will help families and businesses realize short-term successes with long-lasting outcomes.”
At Westfield, it’s more than writing insurance policies, it’s about going above and beyond to help people and families thrive and prosper. Offering support that reflects these values is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing more than $3.5 million since 2015.
“Together with our agency partners, Westfield continues to build on the strong commitment to caring that the founders of our company imagined,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “We believe in the power of community, and we take immense pride in our ability to make meaningful contributions to better communities across the country. It’s a great feeling to link arms with our agents and make an impact.”
