The Chubb Charity Challenge unites our partners, clients, and colleagues in support of their local communities by teaming up with those in need. Harnessing a friendly spirit of competition, Chubb is proud and honored to help our participating teams give back to their charities of choice through the game of golf.
Each year, our teams raise significant money for their charities of choice. See how these funds are impacting communities.
Our teams are deeply committed to the charities they play for, putting their hearts into every stroke and bringing a deep sense of pride to each tournament.
In 1996, Chubb’s Murray Hill office hosted its first charity golf tournament at Meteconk Golf Club. Local New Jersey charities received $25,000 in donations from the event. In 1999, Chubb’s Northern Zone expanded the concept to 10 branches, and in 2000, the Chubb Charity Challenge was officially born. Now, nearly every one of our 48 branches across North America hosts its own local tournament, with players competing to advance to the national event. Teams have raised nearly $15 million for local charities since the tradition began.
Our business partners and clients join with our local staff in locations around North America to enjoy a day on the course dedicated to fun and philanthropy. At least five foursomes compete in a local event, each choosing a charity to play for. The winner earns a trip to the finals and the opportunity to play for a $50,000 donation to their selected charity.
See how our 2018 winners celebrated their $50,000 Chubb Charity Challenge win.
How the challenge works and more.
Each year our teams play on behalf of their favorite local charities, and are passionate about giving their all for each one. We’re proud to continue this legacy, which has resulted in donations to over 6,000 charities in the past 20 years. See the incredible work these organizations are doing and why it matters.

“The positive impact a few individuals can have when we work together is truly astounding.”
“That’s what I love about the Chubb Charity Challenge: it brings people together in a fun and meaningful way.”
“There are always people in your local community who need help, and seeing the impact we can have on the local kids through Chubb Charity Challenge donations is nothing short of amazing.”
“Knowing that we’re all competing for some amazing causes builds a comradery amongst the teams that you don’t see anywhere else. Creating exposure for and giving back to these tremendous charitable organizations makes everyone a winner.”

The tournament was designed to provide a fun, competitive activity to bring together agents, brokers, and clients to thank them for their relationship with us. The money donated through the tournament helps local charities expand their impact in their communities. We are proud to be involved in giving back to the organizations that make a difference in the lives of our agents, brokers and clients, as well as their communities.
