Tyler's Open Letter 1

I am in constant awe of the work you do on behalf of your clients, your agencies, your employees and your communities.

 

We are here to serve and champion you – independent agents and agency owners. We know that working together and partnering with you produces incredible outcomes.

That means we work hard to ensure you have what you need to be successful across all aspects of your business, and that your clients receive the experience and care they expect and deserve.

It also means understanding you do more than the 9-5, in-office work. Whether you own a main street business, or you’re an all-digital agency, you’re woven into the fabric of your community. You connect with people beyond their insurance policy and care deeply about serving the places you live and work.

That is why I am so excited you’re here to be a part of our Decade of Good Deeds – an extension of our support of nonprofits independent you care deeply about.

You may have seen different iterations of our Agent Giving programs over the years, and now our platform has grown to include two ways to earn donations for nonprofits of your choice: Change Agents™ and the Make More Happen™ Awards. Our commitment and investment have also grown.

As part of our giving partnership with you, we have committed $375,000 to Independent Agent Giving, awarding 90 grants between $100-$10,000 this year.

You direct our investments to the nonprofits you’re passionate about. We make awards for your agency’s level of commitment to the nonprofit and its impact on the community—not the volume of business you do with us.

We are also investing in how we share your community volunteer stories. With this new website you’ll find it easier to submit an application to enter to win, and learn how other agents are working to make an impact where they live and work!

As corporations, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and Safeco Insurance have long and rich histories of giving through our foundations and employee-led efforts. You can learn more here.

To have thriving businesses, the communities where we work and live must be healthy. I take tremendous pride in our partnership with you, and this program.  It is with that in mind that I encourage you to join us in a decade of good deeds.

Together, we improve outcomes, and we improve lives. Thank you for all you do to create a better place for us all!

Sincerely,

Tyler's Open Letter
