Community Engagement
 

We are proud to support sustainable communities around the globe by helping businesses and society at large reduce risk, sharing our knowledge, and fostering volunteerism and philanthropy.

Reducing and Mitigating Risk
As risk management professionals, we play an essential role in helping people and companies identify, understand and mitigate their property and liability risks. Our global network of experienced underwriters, risk engineers, appraisers and claim professionals share risk management knowledge and expertise with customers in 26 countries to help them protect their homes and businesses from loss.

Chubb also supports risk reduction efforts through sponsorships and memberships in groups such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, American Society of Safety Engineers, the National Fire Protection Association and others. Such efforts have helped to assure that communities everywhere benefit from safer cars, child restraints, sprinkler systems and the prevention of workplace injuries.

Sharing Our Knowledge
Chubb’s Loss Control University, housed in a state-of-the-art training center in Warren, New Jersey, educates building managers, risk managers, building inspectors and fire officials on fire protection, worker safety and accident investigation. Along with educating customers and agents and brokers, Chubb helps to inform business and industry groups, law enforcement and governmental agencies about a variety of risk management issues.

Fostering Philanthropy and Volunteerism
Our employees around the world are involved in numerous philanthropic and volunteer initiatives at the regional and corporate levels, and Chubb supports efforts by the insurance industry and other organizations to address a variety of macro-societal concerns.

A core component of our corporate philanthropy is Chubb’s Matching Gifts Program, through which we match donations by current and retired employees on a dollar-for-dollar basis (up to $25,000 a year per employee) to many tax-exempt charitable organizations.

Our employees also respond to the needs of local communities by providing volunteer and financial support to numerous educational, civic, cultural and social service organizations. One example of our employees’ efforts is their support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  During the last three years, employees from several of our branches participated in the foundation’s Great Strides fund-raising event, and as a result, have raised more than $600,000 for the cause. In 2013, Chubb received the ”Top National Corporate Team” award when employees from 21 Chubb offices and one of our independent agencies raised more than $280,000 by participating in 15 Great Strides walks.

Chubb executives and managers also serve on the boards of prestigious charitable and philanthropic organizations. For example, Chubb senior executives serve on the national and all four regional division boards of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation. As an active participant in IICF, Chubb has joined other property and casualty insurers to fund millions of dollars in local community grants and provide volunteer service and leadership for programs involved with education, at-risk children, health and safety, disaster preparedness and the environment at neighborhood nonprofit organizations. Through the foundation, our employees volunteered well over 3,000 hours to a variety of causes in the last few years.

The Chubb Charity Challenge is another significant way we support charities each year.  Since its creation in 2000, this series of golf tournaments involving insurance agents, brokers and customers has raised nearly $13 million for thousands of nonprofit organizations across the United States and Canada. The winning teams from more than 40 regional tournaments each year compete for the top prizes in a championship, with the top scoring teams at the regional and championship levels receiving prize money for their charities of choice.

Our employees also share their professional expertise to help those in need.  For example, members of our General Counsel department volunteer to assist renters resolve their disputes with landlords through the Somerset County (New Jersey) Landlord Tenant Program. Chubb has provided more volunteers to the program than any other company.

Other employees teach financial and career planning skills to girls and their mothers through Girls, Inc., as well as to children in grades K-12 through Junior Achievement.  Our branches sponsor career days and host training and skill-building events in connection with INROADS, which arranges summer internships for talented minority high school and college students. We also support organizations like the Jackie Robinson Foundation, which provides scholarships and other assistance to minority students enrolled at institutions of higher education.

In addition to regular philanthropic and volunteer activities, Chubb and our employees are there at the times of greatest need, such as following a natural disaster. Since Storm Sandy, for example, many of our New Jersey employees have been participating in cleanup and rebuilding efforts on the Jersey Shore. Our employees and Chubb also have provided generous financial support to disaster-relief organizations following catastrophic events around the globe.
