The Standard’s Employee Giving Campaign Raises $5.5 Million for Nonprofits and Schools
PORTLAND, Ore.—-During the 2022 Employee Giving Campaign, employees at Standard Insurance Company (The Standard) pledged $1.8 million benefiting more than 2,168 schools and nonprofit organizations across the nation. After a two-for-one match by The Standard and parent organization Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company, total contributions from the campaign will exceed $5.5 million.
“The challenges of the past year remind us of the importance of our nonprofit and school partners for the resiliency of our communities, and I am humbled by the generosity of our employees and retirees.”
More than 1,600 employees pledged support during the campaign. These contributions, which are in addition to The Standard’s corporate and foundation giving, will be distributed to nonprofit organizations and schools during 2023.
“A culture of caring is at the core of our company and how we show up for our customers and community,” said Dan McMillan, president and CEO at The Standard. “The challenges of the past year remind us of the importance of our nonprofit and school partners for the resiliency of our communities, and I am humbled by the generosity of our employees and retirees.”
During the Employee Giving Campaign, The Standard also celebrated the 16th anniversary of the Denim Impact Fund. The fund allows employees to make $100 pledges to collectively help a cause in their community. This year is focused on youth behavioral health and crisis intervention. The Denim Impact Fund program alone raised more than $358,000 for five nonprofit organizations: National Alliance on Mental Illness in Arlington, Virginia; Trillium Family Services in Portland, Oregon; Lines for Life in Portland, Oregon; Lighthouse Youth & Family Services in Cincinnati, Ohio; Mental Health Association of Westchester in White Plains, New York; and HumanKind in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, the Employee Giving Campaign transitioned to a year-round program allowing employees the flexibility to obtain the company match any time during the year. The Standard and Meiji Yasuda will continue to double match employee contributions up to $5,000.
