Highlights $55 million in support for local communities and nonprofit partners
BOSTON (April 15, 2022) – Today, Liberty Mutual Insurance released its annual Giving Report, offering a glimpse into our work to advance access for people with disabilities, empower individuals experiencing homelessness and expand educational opportunities for underserved students.
In a year of unprecedented challenges, Liberty Mutual’s ongoing commitment to advance security and build resiliency for the communities we serve did not waiver. In 2021, we contributed $40 million to more than 500 nonprofits including $5 million in grants to organizations responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees also continued to contribute to the causes they are care about, giving nearly $9 million to more than 8,900 nonprofits globally, which was matched through our Give with Liberty program. Overall, total corporate and employee giving reached over $55 million.
Additional 2021 highlights include:
- Making our largest single grant to-date, $2.5 million, to our long-time partner, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, to support their work to empower young people experiencing homelessness.
- Providing a multi-year grant to The Emerald Necklace Conservancy to support universal access, experiential learning and outdoor recreation. This includes restoring Boston’s Charlesgate Park, adding an inclusive playground, improving access and supporting green infrastructure.
- Combating the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on education through grants to YMCA of Greater Boston, Boston After School and Beyond, and Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA), three organizations whose after-school and summer academic programs are helping children and teens achieve their full potential.
- Fighting against hunger through our Torchbearers program, “Feed the Need,” which included initiatives around education, volunteering and giving. The program resulted in the donation of more than 1.1 million meals through the World Food Program and Feeding America, as well as $283,000 in employee and matched donations.
