Excerpt from Business Wire News Release
Today, Grange Insurance Company announced that it is committing $1 million to local nonprofits to support social justice equality, health and human service initiatives and economic disparities because of COVID-19.
“For more than 85 years, Grange has long been a steadfast partner to local nonprofits who are committed to helping build safer, stronger, and more vibrant communities," said John Ammendola, Grange President and CEO. “Grange is dedicated to making our business and community more diverse, inclusive and equitable. With today’s financial commitment, we are continuing to support our communities most vulnerable during a time of great need due to the pandemic."
Through its Grange Insurance Gives Foundation, the company approved a total of $1 million grants to be released over the next few months. Grange is currently distributing $100,000 to each of the following organizations in Central Ohio: Center for Healthy Families, Central State University, Columbus Urban League, Impact Community Action, Mid-Ohio Foodbank and YMCA of Central Ohio and $100,000 to Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity (Appleton, WI) in support of our affiliate partner Integrity Insurance, who writes business in Wisconsin. Grange identified these organizations based on established relationships and the services they provide to the community.
As part of this special donation, Grange is also contributing to LifeCare Alliance, Volunteers of America, Children’s Hunger Alliance, Furniture Bank, Grange Insurance Audubon Center and YWCA. The remaining funds will be distributed to other nonprofits over the next few months.
