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.
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.
Kids In Need Foundation
Kids in Need Foundation ensures that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.
Stand Up To Cancer
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.
In 2019, we donated 1,780,000 meals to Feeding America®, supplied over 21,000 students with school supplies through the Kids In Need Foundation, and helped train approximately 2,450 Special Olympics athletes as part of our inaugural campaign. This is the difference we can make. This is why we Band Together.
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.

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.
