Each year, the insurance industry comes together for the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) Week of Giving. During this eight-day international and industry-wide initiative, insurance professionals complete volunteer projects in support of community nonprofit organizations.
The IICF is a nonprofit organization that unites the insurance industry in helping communities and enriching lives through grants, volunteer service and leadership. For more than 25 years, thousands of insurance industry volunteers representing their own companies work together in the spirit of industry camaraderie to serve local communities. These projects include partnerships with hundreds of nonprofits and charities, focused in the areas of early childhood literacy; homeless and veterans causes; support of women, children and families; food insecurity; child abuse prevention; beach, river and community park clean ups; disaster preparedness and safety; and other important programs. Since 1998, IICF’s Week of Giving has had in excess of 110,000 industry volunteers. More than 300,000 volunteer hours dedicated to projects, were completed with nonprofits and community organizations across the United States and United Kingdom.
The 2020 Week of Giving runs October 10 - 17. With the COVID-19 pandemic necessitating the cancellation of many in-person/community volunteer projects this year, there remain many other ways to make an impact in the communities where we live and work-safely and creatively through IICF.
