Support agents in their giving efforts

FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

Help your agents win

Consumers want more than just insurance from their independent agent. They want to know they’re doing business with a company that cares. And as their local field reps, you know that independent agents care.

The Make More Happen Awards recognize, honor and reward independent agents who exemplify this mentality with nonprofit donations of up to $10,000 on their behalf and free local media outreach and public relations services to spread the good news to their community.

Listen to the story of 2021 Make More Happen winner Danielle Shearer of Howard Hanna and their partner nonprofit Ronald McDonald House Charities and think about what a Make More Happen award could mean for one of your agency partners.

What’s new for 2023?

Coming soon, you’ll be able to nominate an agency for a Make More Happen Award! First, make sure to talk to them about what they are doing in the community and that the nonprofit they would nominate fits the giving criteria (make sure to review exclusions).

Simply set up an account in the application portal, Reviewr, and fill out the required agency information:

  • Agency name and owner master code
  • Agent name and email
  • One sentence about why they should win Make More Happen (this will not be visible to the agent)

The agent will receive an automated email inviting them to nominate a nonprofit starting with the pre-application. It’s a great way for you to get the ball rolling for them and we will take care of the follow up.

Easier voting! While each of our 2022 Make More Happen awardees were successful in earning the full $10,000 donation, the voting mechanism is getting an update with a simple vote button, making it easier for everyone to show their support. Now participants can focus more on creative marketing to promote their nonprofit and less time explaining how to vote.

More stories! You’ll find a new home for the outstanding local media coverage our Make More Happen Award winners get, because it’s always fun to see our independent agent partners’ charity work in the news.

If no one in the agency is active with a nonprofit:

You and the agency have some work to do before they apply for a Make More Happen Award—but it’s easy to get started and even small efforts count toward showing the public the agency has a heart.

Provide these agents with the Community Giving Guide and talk them through those first few pages which explain why it’s so important to be a business that gives back.
