Community engagement is important to us, from the Sentry Insurance Foundation to associate involvement
At Sentry, we're committed to the communities we’re 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 our charitable giving organization. Our foundation focuses primarily on education, workforce development, United Way, and the Maui community—home of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
The Sentry Insurance Foundation also provides employees with a Matching Gift Program. The foundation matches 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 United Way, with company-wide efforts that include:
- Associate personal gifts and pledges
- Special events fundraising
- Sentry Insurance Foundation donation matching
In 2019, we raised more than $1.2 million during our campaign to help support United Way of Portage County. Another $300,000 was raised for United Way organizations by associates in our field offices. Our 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.
