The Intact Charitable Trust was pleased to support Atlanta Ministry with International Students’ (AMIS) 43rd welcome reception. AMIS promotes cultural and global understanding through friendship and hospitality with international students and scholars in the greater Atlanta area.

Since 1978, AMIS has been welcoming international students and scholars to the Atlanta area through programs and events which help them get to know Atlanta and connect them to local families and individuals who want to serve and make international friends. The annual event welcomes new and returning students from out of the country who will attend nearby colleges and universities this academic year.

Ben Ward, Underwriting Manager at Intact Specialty Property had the opportunity to present at the event, where he spoke about Intact Insurance. During his speech, Ben also shared the 2020 Social Impact video to highlight the continued support to those nonprofits that matter most to members of our communities.  Ben and his wife are AMIS volunteers who assist with program development and event planning.

The event was attended by over 400 students, community leaders and members of the Atlanta business community. During the pandemic, students faced many challenges such as travel restrictions, isolation and remote learning. AMIS offers them support and opportunities to make connections in the community.
