3 REASONS TO SUPPORT
THE IICF BLAZING THE TRAIL BENEFIT DINNER
1 SUPPORT YOUR INDUSTRY
We are better TOGETHER
The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation is THE collaborative, philanthropic voice of the industry. IICF represents the collective conscience, the charitable catalyst and the organized clearinghouse for a plethora of leadership and volunteer opportunities annually.
By uniting the combined strengths of insurance companies, reinsurers, agencies, brokerages, and additional and complementary businesses, the Foundation has had the privilege of championing health, education and safety causes by providing more than 200,000 volunteer hours and financial grants in excess of $23.5 million.
Since its inception just four years ago, the Foundation’s Midwest Division has rallied the Region and risen to the challenge, granting $1.4 million to nonprofits throughout the area, and providing over 4400 hours of hands-on help.
The IICF enhances and promotes the integrity and reputation of our industry. As an integral part of that industry, it seems essential your Company have its presence at the IICF table.
2 PROMOTE YOUR COMPANY
Corporate Consciousness Stands Out in a Crowd
Insurance and insurance-related companies are often misunderstood, and their contributions to the community at-large, often overlooked.
Your support of the IICF Midwest’s 5th Annual Blazing the Trail Benefit Dinner will shine a spotlight on your Company’s involvement in an organization known for its altruistic, results-driven endeavors in arenas including health, education and safety.
Through an impressive acknowledgement package of advertising, marketing, social media, promotional materials and event signage, the IICF makes sure your Company commitment comes across, loud and clear.

Now in its 22nd year, the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation, funded and directed by insurance industry professionals, has contributed more than $23.5 million in local community grants, nearly 200,000 hours of volunteer service, and the leadership of over 25,000 industry volunteers for programs dealing with education, children at risk, health and safety, disaster preparedness, and the environment.
Since its inception in 2011, the Midwest Division of the IICF has been adding to those numbers by uniting the collective energy and resources of its region’s professionals to raise and provide grant money, volunteer service and leadership to health, education and safety-related non-profit organizations throughout the area.
Shortly after it began, the trailblazing IICF Midwest launched the first-ever IICF Associate Board, which continues to encourage and engage young industry professionals in philanthropic endeavors. Two years ago, the IICF Midwest announced and welcomed its Ohio Chapter, a powerful organization already making a big impact in its communities.
