Community Impact

At Wawanesa, community is the essence of who we are.

Our community impact program invests over $3.5 million dollars annually to local and national partner organizations in the U.S. and Canada. Our program is rooted in Wawanesa's purpose, to look after one another. It also exemplifies our vision of together, building a safer, healthier, and more sustainable future for our members and communities.

Our Focus on Climate Change

Climate change is a priority issue affecting our communities and the insurance industry. As a mutual insurer, and purpose-led company we believe we can do more to respond to climate change and create climate resilient communities.

Wawanesa's people-focused approach influences everything we do including our community impact program. Which focuses on the people who are on the frontlines helping communities mitigate and adapt to climate change.

We’re working to build more resilient communities

A variety of company-led programs deepen our impact in the communities where Wawanesa members and employees live and work.

My Community Day

Every year, employees receive paid time from work to give back to their local community and earn a $100 Community Impact Gift Card by using their time to donate to a charity or non-profit organization of their choice.

United Way Campaign

Our annual United Way campaign supports local community organizations by bringing together employees across the company. With Wawanesa’s donation matching program every contribution is doubled to make an even greater impact.

Being a Part of the Solution

Wawanesa is proud to serve our members and our community. It’s our responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint, and so we’ve made some changes which will contribute to the solutions we need.
