Columbus, OH — Grange Insurance was recently honored again with the 2022 Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service, presented by Smart Business magazine, for excellence in 2021. The Pillar Awards honor businesses of all industries and sizes that make outstanding contributions to their community through charitable giving, volunteerism, in-kind donations and other forms of giving back.
“This award was made possible thanks to the dedication of our associates who are crucial to Grange’s philanthropic efforts and go above and beyond to support the communities where we live, work and serve. I’m proud of the way our associates are stepping up to provide much-needed support during these critical times,” said Grange President and CEO John Ammendola.
“It’s important to also acknowledge our nonprofit partners. They are everyday heroes whose work can be overwhelming even in the best of times. They are working tirelessly to advance racial equality, provide for basic needs like food, shelter, heat and electricity, and bring access to services that improve quality of life. The list goes on. The work they are doing matters, and I applaud their dedication and commitment.”
In 2021 Grange and its associates provided nearly $2 million in financial support to almost 100 nonprofit organizations, many of whom are committed to advancing racial equality and supporting health and human service initiatives. This amount doubles pre-pandemic financial contributions. Grange continually seeks ways to create opportunities in geographic areas it serves because it believes that beyond providing peace of mind and protection during life's unexpected events, it can help build healthy and vibrant communities.
Grange’s 1,200 plus associates are crucial to the company’s philanthropic efforts by contributing financially, volunteering, serving on nonprofit boards and more. These efforts fuel economic prosperity, improve the lives around us and create sustainable solutions that will continue to change lives for years to come.
