September 5, named International Day of Charity by the United Nations, serves as an opportunity for our employees across the globe to celebrate our collective commitment to charitable causes. At Assurant, we’re proud to reflect on some of our recent Assurant Foundation charitable contributions and employee volunteerism across the globe.
Assurant’s charitable giving philosophy – Protecting, Connecting, Inspiring – aligns deeply with our purpose and values. We are steadfast in our commitment to strengthen communities and to equal opportunity, non-discrimination and fair treatment for all.
The Assurant Foundation focuses on:
- Protecting: We help people access safe places to live and thrive.
- Connecting: We strengthen the communities where we operate, especially when disasters strike. This includes supporting core charitable partners in ways that enhance their ability to serve.
- Inspiring: We encourage and prepare diverse talent and innovative leaders for the future.
Through the Assurant Foundation, we’ve provided over $5 million in grants, crisis relief, matching gifts and in-kind donations to charitable organizations. It's one of the reasons we were recognized as a 2021 honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light.
Join us in applauding our local and international employees for living out Assurant's core values and driving the Assurant Foundation's strategic goals:
