Chubb Charity Challenge

Bringing together agents and clients from around North America to drive, chip and putt for causes they care about.

Golfing for good

The Chubb Charity Challenge is about harnessing the spirit of competition and working together with our business partners, clients and colleagues to build deeper relationships in our local communities and become the best neighbors possible by giving back. We are proud and honored to help the participating teams support their charities of choice through the game of golf.

Supporting local communities

Each year, our teams raise significant money for their charities of choice. See how these funds are impacting communities.

Why they play

Our teams usually have a deep personal connection with the charity they play for. We feel privileged to help them support their causes.

Teeing up across North America

More than 6,000 charities across the United States and Canada have received donations through agent, broker and client participation in Chubb Charity Challenge.

The tradition

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.

The competition

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 selecting a charity to play for. The winner earns a trip to the finals to play for $50,000.

Frequently asked questions

From how it works to who competes, get the details on the Chubb Charity Challenge.

What is the Chubb Charity Challenge?

The Chubb Charity Challenge is an annual golf tournament, now in its 19th year, aimed at raising funds for local charities across North America. Agents, brokers and clients form teams and play in local tournaments organized by Chubb’s nearby branch offices. Each team plays on behalf of a local charity of their choosing. The winning team in each regional tournament is invited to play in the national tournament in the fall for a chance to win up to $50,000 in donations for their chosen charity.

Who participates in the Chubb Charity Challenge?

Chubb invites insurance agents, brokers and clients to form teams with up to four players. Tournaments take place in cities across North America from May through September.

How does the tournament work?

To hold a tournament, local branches must have at least five teams participating. Each team picks a charity or organization that they play for in the tournament. The winnings go to the designated charities, based on each team’s ranking in the event leaderboard. A portion of the local entry fees fund the prize pool for the national tournament.

The winning team in each regional tournament is invited to play in the national tournament in November, for a chance to win from $5,000 to $50,000 in additional donations for their charity.

The 2018 Chubb Charity Challenge national finals will take place on October 28-30, at The Sanctuary at Kiawah in Kiawah, S.C.

Do all the charities represented in the tournament — both regional and national — receive a donation?

All charities in the national tournament receive a donation. For the local tournaments, it’s up to the discretion of the branch. In 2017, participating teams raised a total of $903,700 for charities across North America.

Between 2000 and 2017, more than 5,200 teams participated in the Chubb Charity Challenge, raising nearly $15 million for selected charities.

Why does Chubb sponsor this annual event?

Chubb is committed to supporting the local communities where we work. 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.
