Rockville, Maryland, August 29, 2019 – Insurance Associates/MMA and the Selective Insurance Group Foundation partnered to support the efforts of Patriot Point through a $1,000 grant. Patriot Point was selected by Insurance Associates/MMA for the grant as part of the Selective ‘President’s Club Matching Gift’ initiative, which allows premier agents the opportunity to make an impact in the communities where they live and work by providing a donation with matching gift from the Foundation.
The President’s Club Matching Gift program is run by the Selective Insurance Group Foundation which is a philanthropic affiliate of Selective Insurance Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: SIGI). Together with President’s Club agencies, such as Insurance Associates/MMA, the Foundation has supported thousands of community-based and national nonprofits in regions across the country since the initiative began in 2002.
“The work that Patriot Point does to help our nation’s warriors so they can reconnect with their families, decompress after deployment, and take time to rejuvenate is vital to our community. Our service members face challenges abroad while working to maintain our safety and security so this is a way for us to give back to them” said Stephen A. Spencer, President, Insurance Associates/MMA.
The grant represents a $500 donation from Insurance Associates/MMA, matched by a $500 gift from The Selective Insurance Group Foundation. The grant will help Patriot Point’s efforts to provide a relaxing and safe environment for our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured service members to enjoy outdoor recreation activities with their families.
“Our network of President’s Club agents has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to supporting their local communities in ways that reach far beyond their insurance enterprises,” said Chuck Musilli, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer, Distribution Strategies, Selective. “Together with Insurance Associates/MMA, we are proud to award a grant to Patriot Point to help further its mission in supporting our nation’s warriors.”
Now in its eighteenth year, the Selective President’s Club Matching Gift program has more than doubled in size and scale. It has grown from supporting organizations in 11 states in 2002 to reaching charities in 23 states and the District of Columbia in 2018. With the help of 94 of Selective’s top agencies, the program granted more than $45,000 to more than 100 charities in 2018. The initiative aims to support community-based organizations with a variety of missions such as civic organizations, conservation and environmental agencies, educational entities, food banks and shelters, hospitals and hospice centers, military support services and others.
