The Nationwide Insurance Foundation’s mission is, “to improve the quality of life in communities in which a large number of Nationwide members, associates, agents and their families live and work.”
Through Nationwide’s Community Impact Model, the Foundation assesses the needs in our community and awards grants that support organizations that provide emergency and basic needs, crisis stabilization, personal and family empowerment and community enrichment.
A history of giving
Since 2000, the Nationwide Insurance Foundation has awarded more than $310 million to 3,000 qualified nonprofit organizations that work to meet crucial needs in communities with a significant presence of Nationwide associates.
In 2006, the Foundation pledged the largest gift in its history, granting $50 million to Nationwide Children's Hospital.
The Nationwide Insurance Foundation is dedicated to making strategic philanthropic investments to meet the most critical needs in communities. The Foundation also helps associates, agents and retirees maximize the impact of their personal gifts by matching contributions to our United Way campaign and to accredited higher education institutions dollar-for-dollar.
