2021 marks the fourth year of the Broker Donation Fund, a program we’ve developed to improve our business partnerships with our independent brokers across the prairies. Earlier this year, we asked brokers to submit a proposal for a registered charity of their choice describing how the charity would benefit the communities that they live and work in. We received several submissions and randomly chose three entries per province. SMI staff then voted to determine which charity would be the recipient in each province. With all of the votes tallied, we are pleased to be donating $5,000 to the following charities:
• MANITOBA – Children’s Heritage Fund submitted by Dimensions Insurance Management Inc. in Winnipeg
This donation will go to the Stories of Hope Project, which is a platform where students originating from different countries can share their stories about their families and their history in a supportive setting to bring hope to what was once a difficult time for them.
• SASKATCHEWAN – Prince Albert Safe Shelter for Women submitted by Affinity Insurance Services in Prince Albert
This donation will help to ensure everyday essentials are available to run the shelter such as groceries, toiletries, diapers, toys, and transportation.
• ALBERTA – Bissell Centre submitted by Access Insurance Group Ltd. in Edmonton
This donation will go towards the Bissell Centre’s meals program that is part of the Early Childhood Development Program.
A HUGE thank you to everyone that sent in their submission this year! We are proud to be part of a broker network that truly cares about their community and look forward to continuing this charitable initiative in 2022.
