Grange is committed to community enrichment.

One of Grange’s five core values is to “do the right thing.” Not only does this principle guide us when providing peace of mind to our policyholders in their time of need, but it also drives our commitment to serving the communities where we work and live.

Grange’s multi-faceted community relations program includes financial support, volunteerism and in-kind donations. We’re proud to lend a hand to organizations that transform lives, provide comfort and enrich the community. Primarily, we focus our support on 501(c) (3) organizations focused on health and human services, education, and arts and community enrichment programs.

In 2014, our various contributions added up to:

  • Approximately $700,000 in donations to non-profit organizations
  • Another $150,000 to match agent contributions to local charities throughout our footprint
  • Upwards of 1,500 associate hours volunteered for various charities
  • More than $80,000 worth of in-kind printing services for dozens of non-profits
  • 54 percent of Grange leadership (35 out of 64 executive officers) served on more than 40 local nonprofit boards

Grange supports many organizations but has always specifically invested in those that enhance children’s lives. The Grange Insurance Audubon Center provides educational and recreational activities for students and families throughout the central Ohio area. This former site of dilapidated warehouses and brown fields has been converted to a nature oasis along the downtown Columbus riverfront where schoolchildren can participate in hands-on, nature-based education.
