Welcome back to our “Find a Funder” blog series. For this installment of the series, we are profiling an insurance giant who has been on a mission to support and strengthen communities across the United States: State Farm.

 

statefarm_logo.pngState Farm has been selling insurance since founder G.J. Mecherle sold his first auto policy in 1922. Since then, the mutual company has more than 65,000 employees and 18,000 agents servicing 82 million policies and accounts throughout the United States. The company continues to keep their customers as top priority, and serves them with their variety of services: insurance, annuities, mutual funds, and banking products.

To promote their “good neighbour” image, the company provides grants through their State Farm Companies Foundation. State Farm’s charitable grants are intended to help advance inclusiveness while discouraging harmful discrimination. Along with these areas, the company focuses its giving on:

  • Safety: auto & roadway safety, teen driver education, home safety & fire prevention, disaster preparedness, and disaster recovery

  • Community Development: affordable housing, job training, neighbourhood revitalization, small business development, financial literacy, and first time homeownership

  • Education: teacher development, service-learning, and education reform/systemic improvement
