SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Giving Back Brilliantly Since 1913

Our 2020 Band Together Campaign

Jewelers Mutual is passionate about supporting worthy organizations as diverse as our policyholders. That’s why each year we select three, national non-profits to join with us in our Band Together campaign. This campaign encourages our policyholders to vote for a non-profit they feel most strongly about.

At the end of 2020, Jewelers Mutual will donate $500,000 in total. Each non-profit is guaranteed a minimum of $100,000, and the remaining $200,000 is distributed based on the amount of votes each receives from our policyholders between 3/15/2020 and 11/15/2020. A donation will be made to comparable non-profits in Canada on behalf of our Canadian policyholders.
