Strengthening the Jewelry Industry
We invest significantly in organizations and tools that benefit the jewelry industry as a whole. 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.
Our 2019 Giveback Campaign
In 2019, Jewelers Mutual Group provided $500,000 in donations to three deserving organizations: Feeding America®, the Kids In Need Foundation and Special Olympics. The amounts donated to these organizations were based on votes by the company’s personal jewelry policyholders. Donations were also made to Canadian organizations with similar missions.
The donation of $178,300 helps provide at least 1,783,000 meals. $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks.
Kids In Need Foundation
The donation of $169,500 supplies over 820 classrooms and 21,000 under-served students with supplies and resources. Additionally, Jewelers Mutual became the first national sponsor of GiftATeacher.org, a program which funds and provides enough school supplies to supply an entire classroom for a full semester.
The donation of $147,200 by Jewelers Mutual helped train approximately 2,450 Special Olympics athletes and provide a significant and life changing impact for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

In 2015, Jewelers Mutual installed 408 solar panels on the roof of our main corporate office. The array spans the entire length and width of our building. Its energy production covers 15% of our total energy needs expenditure and has reduced our contribution to pollution by the amount an average car produces over 140 years.
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.
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.
