Community engagement is important to us, from the Sentry Insurance Foundation to associate involvement
At Sentry, we're committed to the communities we are a part of. Our associates are actively involved in places they live and work with their time, efforts, and resources. As a company, we follow suit. Our involvement includes many different facets:
- Volunteer efforts
- Scholarship funding
- Associate giving
- Corporate giving
The Sentry Insurance Foundation is Sentry's charitable giving organization. Our foundation focuses primarily on education and support of the United Way, while also sponsoring the Sentry Insurance Invitation to the Arts.
The Sentry Insurance Foundation also provides employees with a Matching Gift Program. The foundation will match individual associate donations to eligible charitable organizations up to $7,500 per year per associate.
By participating in and supporting our local communities, we contribute to a better, happier, and healthier society.
United Way campaign
One of the marquee fundraising events at Sentry is devoted to United Way. Each year, a special two-week campaign takes place to raise money for the United Way, with company-wide efforts that include:
- Special-events fundraising
- Associate pledges
- Sentry Insurance Foundation matching donation
In 2015 and 2016, we raised more than $1 million during each year’s campaign to help support the United Way of Portage County. In 2016, another $229,567 was raised for United Way by associates in field offices. The United Way campaign is a proud tradition at Sentry—one we all look forward to participating in.
At Sentry, charitable giving is an integral part of our business. It’s who we are. And who we’ll always be.
