Zurich in North America first began its Workplace Giving program, “Giving Week,” in 2002. The campaign has since been renamed “A Time for Giving,” and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has remained a top charity of choice for Zurich employees.
Since becoming a partner, Zurich has been named Workplace Giving Partner of the Year (2011) and has generously donated $50,000 toward the Cure4Kids website and program. To commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary in March 2012, Zurich employees based in Omaha and Atlanta assembled more than 200 craft kits in support of the St. Jude Child Life Program. It was part of the company’s service project campaign “100 Ways that Zurich Gives Back.”
In addition to the craft kits, Zurich generously donated $10,000 to St. Jude during their recent visit to the St. Jude campus and to Target House, which accommodates families of patients receiving long-term care. To date, Zurich and its employees have raised more than $1 million in company and employee donations.
