Doing good is at the core of everything we do here at Eastern Insurance. We truly do follow the message of the Join Us For Good campaign,created in collaboration with our parent company, Eastern Bank, to thank those who help awaken good in their communities, celebrate the differences they are making, and help them continue to prosper.
We have clients from all walks of life and in all areas of New England. That’s why we’re excited to have a dedicated Nonprofit Practice here at Eastern Insurance to support the unique needs and challenges of nonprofit organizations. Over 250 nonprofits in our local communities have already partnered with Eastern Insurance.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastern Bank, Eastern Insurance contributes to the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation. On average since 1999, The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation has donated 10% of its net income to local charities. That totals over $100 million donated to our communities. In 2017 alone, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation donated $7 million to more than 1,600 non-profit organizations.
We impact geographic communities from southern New Hampshire to Cape Cod and throughout the South Shore, North Shore, Metro West, Merrimack Valley and Greater Boston. We focus our giving efforts on nonprofits that provide opportunities for employment, education, healthcare, housing, childcare, healthy meals, and other essential support services.
As a member of the communities we serve, our employees at Eastern Bank and Eastern Insurance collectively donated over 50,000 volunteer hours in 2017. Volunteerism is an integral part of our culture — our employees help people and organizations in our local communities prosper, every day.
As part of the Join Us For Good movement, our employees have helped on a variety of projects — from staining decks at group residential homes through The Arc of the South Shore to making summer reading kits for students at the Ellis Mendell School in Roxbury through a partnership with City Year. Every member of our company is dedicated to supporting the communities we serve and the nonprofit organizations we support.
Here at Eastern Insurance, we welcome the opportunity to help your nonprofit in your mission to do GOOD. From attracting and retaining top talent to reducing risk and helping you grow and expand your organization, we can assist nonprofits in ways other firms cannot.
