We are Liberty Torchbearers, and we believe in supporting and celebrating our employees who help make lives better with their inspiring work for the causes they care about, through Serve with Liberty, Give with Liberty and Volunteer with Liberty.
Liberty Torchbearers build a community of caring
At Liberty Mutual, philanthropy is not just something we do — it’s who we are. Every year, our employees serve, give and volunteer countless hours to help their communities. In total, 75% of all employees participated in Liberty Torchbearers programs in 2019.
Last spring, fully half of our employees participated in Serve with Liberty, our annual days of service, completing 2,538 projects across 23 countries. Additionally, 57% donated to charities of their choice through Give with Liberty, earning a 50% match from the company. And, Volunteer with Liberty celebrated our employees who gave their time and talent to advance the causes they care about.

Celebrating our employees' volunteering
Many Liberty employees volunteer on their own — sharing skills and expertise, serving on boards, or just lending a needed hand. In 2019, we were very pleased to recognize those efforts with the new 100 Club for employees who log 100 or more volunteer hours. Members of the 100 Club can extend grants of $2,500 or more to a nonprofit of their choice. All Volunteer with Liberty participants who track their volunteer hours are eligible to reward mini-grants. Together, Liberty employees directed over half a million dollars through these programs during the year.
"For me, volunteering is very personal. Public housing is really important to me because some people look down on public housing. But I was in a spot in my life when my family was homeless and public housing was something we were looking up at. There were so many people who helped me. Volunteering is my way of giving back.” – Tim Granfield, Technology Finance, Liberty Mutual
