Prevail Receives Grant from Shepherd Insurance and Westfield Insurance Foundation

Westfield Legacy of Caring Program Lends a Hand to Communities Across America

 

June 2018 – Prevail, Inc. received a grant from Shepherd Insurance and Westfield Insurance Foundation to help reach more victims in our community as part  of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program. At Westfield, it’s more than writing insurance policies. Helping friends and neighbors during times of need is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents are invited to nominate a local nonprofit for the Legacy of Caring program. The program invests in communities and helps impact disaster recovery, family stability or safety, and programs that invest in attracting and developing talent to insurance as a career.  

“At Prevail, it is our responsibility to be a good neighbor and do our part to help strengthen the communities we call home,” said Susan Ferguson, Executive Director. “We are proud of our collaboration with Westfield and the collective impact to critically important initiatives that are essential to so many people in our own backyard.”

“Through the support from the Westfield Insurance Foundation and Shepherd Insurance we can increase our efforts toward providing life saving services in our community.” said Ferguson.

This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than $500,000 to neighborhoods across the country. Shepherd Insurance is one of 88 agencies in 17 states donating to 95 nonprofits, including Prevail for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. Awarding grants through the program is an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses and communities in times of uncertainty. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing nearly $1.8 million in the last four years.

“Our agency partners are one of our greatest assets and we appreciate their dedication to their own communities,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman.  “Our agents care and work hard to protect our customers, and the Legacy of Caring grant program helps build brighter futures in their own communities.”
