Editor's Note: The voting period closed on July 31. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Jewelers Mutual has a strong history of giving back. We're passionate about making a difference both at home in Wisconsin and with our policyholders across the U.S. and Canada.

That’s why this summer, we are banding together in a big way to inspire change and support some of the basic needs that many of us take for granted.

We’re making history.

During our Band Together campaign, a $2 million donation will be dispersed across four different nonprofit organizations supporting three different causes: health, home and hunger.

It's the largest one-time gift ever made in our 103-year history.

And here's the best part:

You get a say in how the donation is divvyed up.

Simply vote each day for the cause you would like to support!

When the voting period closes at the end of July, we’ll distribute the donations among the three causes based on the number of votes received.
