The Arbella Insurance Foundation’s $50 to 25 Program

$50k to 25 Charities

The Arbella Insurance Group is proudly celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013. As a company, Arbella has long been committed to giving back to the community and accomplishes this through the activities of the Arbella Insurance Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to engage in activities and to support not-for-profit organizations that have a significant positive impact on the people and communities served by Arbella.

In recognition of our 25th anniversary and the important role the Foundation plays in supporting our communities, Arbella’s Foundation created the “$50 to 25” program, through which the Foundation is donating one-time grants of $50,000 to 25 different local charities. The Arbella Insurance Foundation’s Selection Committee chose the 25 recipient charities from proposals thoughtfully submitted by Arbella employees, independent insurance agents, and longtime charitable partners.
