Community Engagement
 

We support the development of sustainable communities around the globe by helping reduce risk, sharing our knowledge, and remaining committed to philanthropy and volunteerism.

 

Helping Reduce Risk
As risk management professionals, we play an essential role in helping individuals and companies identify, understand and mitigate the property and liability risks that are associated with property ownership and commerce. Our global network of experienced underwriters, risk engineers, appraisers and claim professionals share risk management knowledge and expertise with customers in 26 countries to help them avoid or reduce loss.

Chubb also supports risk reduction efforts through sponsorships and memberships in groups such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, American Society of Safety Engineers and National Fire Protection Association. Such efforts have helped to assure that communities everywhere benefit from safer cars, child restraints, sprinkler systems and the prevention of workplace injuries.

Sharing Our Knowledge
Chubb’s Loss Control University, housed in a state-of-the-art training center in Warren, New Jersey, offers educational programs on fire protection, worker safety and accident investigation to building managers, risk managers, building inspectors and fire officials. In addition to educating customers and agents and brokers, Chubb helps to inform business and industry groups, law enforcement and governmental agencies about a variety of risk management issues.

Philanthropy and Volunteerism
Chubb supports efforts by the insurance industry and other organizations to address macro-societal concerns. Our employees around the world are involved in numerous philanthropic and volunteer initiatives at the regional and corporate levels.

Chubb executives and managers serve on the boards of prestigious charitable and philanthropic organizations. For example, Chubb senior executives serve on the national and all four regional division boards of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation. As active participants in IICF, Chubb has joined with other property and casualty insurers to fund millions of dollars in local community grants and provide volunteer service and leadership for programs involved with education, at-risk children, health and safety, disaster preparedness and the environment at neighborhood nonprofit organizations. Through the foundation, our employees volunteered more than 2,800 hours to a variety of causes in the last three years.

One of Chubb's commitments to supporting charities occurs annually through the Chubb Charity Challenge, which brings together insurance agents, brokers and customers throughout the United States and Canada to play golf and raise money for charities. Since its creation in 2000, the golf tournament has raised $12 million for more than 5,000 charities in the communities in which Chubb's agents and customers live and work.  The winning teams from more than 40 regional tournaments each year compete for the top prizes in a championship. The top scoring teams at both the regional and championship levels receive prize money for their charities of choice.

 

A core component of our corporate philanthropy is Chubb’s Matching Gifts Program, through which we match donations by current and retired employees of $50 or more on a dollar-for-dollar basis (up to $25,000 a year per employee) to many tax-exempt charitable organizations.

Our employees also respond to the needs of local communities by regularly providing volunteer and financial support to numerous educational, civic, cultural and social-service organizations. One example of our employees’ efforts is their support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  During the last three years, employees from several of our branches participated in Great Strides, the foundation's biggest annual national fund-raiser, and as result, Chubb has become the top corporate team.  In 2013, 21 Chubb offices in 15 markets, partnering with one of our independent agencies, participated in the walks and raised more than $280,000 for the cause. In total, these efforts have resulted in more than $600,000 in contributions to the foundation.

Our employees also have taught financial and career planning skills to girls and their mothers through Girls, Inc., as well as to children in grades K-12 through Junior Achievement.  Our branches sponsor career days and host training and skill-building events in connection with INROADS, which arranges summer internships for talented minority high school and college students, and we support organizations like the Jackie Robinson Foundation, which provides scholarships and other assistance to minority students enrolled at institutions of higher education.

In addition to such regular philanthropic and volunteer activities, Chubb and our employees are there at the times of greatest need, such as following a natural disaster. Since Storm Sandy, for example, many of our New Jersey employees have been participating in cleanup and rebuilding efforts on the Jersey Shore. Our employees and Chubb also have provided generous financial support to disaster-relief organizations following catastrophic events around the globe.
