Giving Back: A Legacy at Combined Insurance
The company supported more than 15 Chicagoland and national charitable organizations in 2018 - 12/21/2018
Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, continued to honor their founder, W. Clement Stone’s, philanthropic legacy and engaged in charitable endeavors year-round. The company gave back to more than 15 organizations through donations, employee-led volunteerism and corporate sponsorships.
“Giving back to the diverse communities in which we live and work is a strong part of our company culture and common purpose here at Combined Insurance,” said Melanie Lundberg, Assistant Vice President of Talent Management and Corporate Communications at Combined Insurance. “We take pride in helping others in need and making the world a better place—a vision and philosophy created 100 years ago that we are still living into today.”
Combined Insurance founder and noted philanthropist, W. Clement Stone, donated more than $275 million to civic groups, mental health, and other charitable organizations during his lifetime—in efforts to “make the world a better place.” This year, the company supported organizations doing just that, such as: American Cancer Society, JDRF, Heartland Alliance, OneSight, USO of Illinois and Luke’s Wings.
Every year, the sales teams earn the privilege of donating on behalf of their region to a military-related charitable organization, based on achieving established sales targets. From this charitable campaign, entitled Operation Veteran GiveBack, $50,000 was divided and donated to two military/veteran charities—Luke’s Wings and Heartland Alliance’s Support Services for Veteran Families Program. As the nation’s Number One Military Friendly® Employer for 2019 and number one Military Spouse Friendly® Employer for 2019*, the company demonstrated its continued commitment to supporting U.S. veterans and military servicemen and women.
Another military/veteran-focused charity that the company has committed to in 2018 is the USO of Illinois through the following:
- In May, approximately 15 employees served 451 meals to service members and their families at the USO Great Lakes Naval Base in Great Lakes, Ill.
- During the holidays, employees put together 100 care packages to send to deployed service members.
Additionally, Combined Insurance has given back in 2018 to a variety of organizations, such as:
- Granting the gift of sight by partnering with OneSight to help thousands of children and individuals who lack access to vision care.
- Fundraising and sponsoring over $13,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society and their mission to free the world from cancer.
- Giving back to Latino-focused charitable organizations and communities, including Casa Central, a Hispanic-serving social service agency in Chicagoland and Mujeres Latinas en Accion,
With $100, a positive spirit and a vision to make the world a better place, W. Clement Stone developed and grew the company into what it is today—still headquartered in Chicago with sales agents and managers throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
