The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation helps communities and enriches lives by uniting the collective strengths of the insurance industry in providing grants, volunteer service and leadership.
Through the collaborative efforts of insurance companies, reinsurance companies, employees, agents and brokers, individuals and strategic partners of the industry, the Foundation supports community nonprofits and charitable organizations that meet local needs throughout the United States and United Kingdom.
IICF exists to provide grants and generate support for designated, charitable nonprofit organizations, and to reinvest in local communities where funds are raised. Through its Community Grants Program, the Western Division helps to meet critical local needs by supporting programs in the areas of child abuse prevention, disaster preparedness, education and health & human services.
Since 1998, the Foundation has hosted the largest ongoing volunteer service initiative in the insurance industry, the IICF Week of Giving. Industry professionals from across the U.S. and UK join together for this week-long series of volunteer projects serving an array of nonprofits, and giving back to the local communities in which industry volunteers live and work.
