OneBeacon Donates $500k to COVID-19 Relief Efforts

by | Apr 9, 2020 | Charitable Trust, Employees Give Back, Intact Donations

In addition to focusing on the well-being of our employees, producers and customers, we are committed to helping our communities be resilient during this challenging time. Intact, our parent organization, has committed $2M for COVID-19 relief efforts throughout North America, with $500k targeting U.S. nonprofits.

OneBeacon is donating $200k to Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, while the additional $300k will support local efforts within those communities where our employees live and work. These contributions will go towards assisting organizations addressing people in need due to this pandemic.

We’ve engaged our employees to determine which local organizations to target for donations. To stay connected while working apart, our employees are finding creative ways to collaborate with one another in making these decisions.

We’re proud to be a member of the Intact family, and grateful to be able to help our communities better cope during this crisis.
