Band Together Campaign
We are passionate about supporting worthy organizations. That’s why we selected three, national non-profits to join us in our Band Together campaign.
This campaign encourages our policyholders to vote for a non-profit they feel most strongly about. Read more about our 2020 Charitable Giving Campaign.
Kids In Need Foundation
Our support for Kids in Need Foundation has supplied 2,000 students with backpacks, each filled with essential supplies for the 2020-2021 school year.
Kids In Need Foundation believes every child in America should have equal opportunity and access to a quality education.
Through its programs and National Network of Resource Centers, KINF serves an estimated 5 million students, 200,000 teachers, and provides over $100 million in product at no cost to schools or teachers, empowering teachers to teach and learners to learn.
In 2020, we donated 1,940,000 meals* to Feeding America®.
Feeding America® seeks to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks.
Stand Up To Cancer
Our support to Stand Up To Cancer has funded 1,950 scientists from 210 institutions, 180+ cancer clinical trials involving 12,000+ patients and helped support research for 9 FDA approvals for new cancer therapies.
Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
Supply A Teacher
In 2020, we were the national presenting sponsor for Kids in Need Foundation’s Supply A Teacher program, which donates supply boxes to qualifying teachers.
The Supply A Teacher program provides two large boxes to teachers filled with a semester’s worth of supplies.
Nearly 1,000 Supply A Teacher boxes had been distributed nationwide by the Kids in Need Foundation in 2020.
Strengthening the Jewelry Industry
We invest significantly in organizations and tools that benefit the jewelry industry.
Our jewelry business policyholders enjoy free membership in the Jeweler Security Alliance loss prevention organization and access to our online trainings that encourage their continued education.
Additionally, we support organizations that promote ethical business practices, like American Gem Society and Jewelers of America.
Women’s Jewelry Association Female Veteran Grant
We collaborate with the Women’s Jewelry Associated to award a merit-based grant to a US Military veteran for professional growth within the jewelry and/or watch industry. Learn more.
JM™ Care Plan Helps Jewelers for Children
JM Care Plan donated over $4,500 to support Jewelers for Children based on care plans sold throughout October 2020.
Jewelers for Children is an organization founded by the U.S. jewelry industry to benefit children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect through their charity partners.
Our employees are generous givers. The company amplifies this generosity by matching their charitable donations 50%, to any eligible non-profit, nationwide.
All employees are given 12 paid volunteer hours each year and are encouraged to volunteer either individually or as a group through company-organized events.
Charitable Giving Committee
Our corporate gifting initiatives are employee-lead through a cross-functional team that meets quarterly. The committee decides where our local philanthropic efforts are directed and assures each donation provides a positive impact on our community.
Individual departments are empowered to and often organize their own charitable initiatives above and beyond what the company sponsors. During the holidays you’ll often see department food drives, coat drives or Adopt-A-Family programs popping up across the company.
Our employees’ children are eligible to apply for educational scholarships each year. We also sponsor various jewelry industry scholarships and training through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
