Merchants Insurance Group 21-Year Employee Charitable Giving Reaches More than Half a Million Dollars

The employees of Merchants Insurance Group contributed more than $34,200 in 2019, for a total of more than $547, 100 raised from 1999 through 2019.

The organizations supported were chosen through employee suggestions, and the employees raised funds through activities such as “dress-down” days, raffles and split clubs. The activities are organized and managed by Merchants’ employees through their C.I.A., or Colleagues in Action, committee, which accepts nominations for non-profits throughout the year.

More than 60 nonprofits were supported in 2019, including Crisis Services, Coats for Kids, the Niagara County SPCA, the Boys & Girls Club of Erie County, The Community Music School of Buffalo, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention of Western New York. The company also held a special holiday fundraiser for the Compass House, the Buffalo-area shelter for homeless youth.
