Each year, we conduct a company-wide United Way campaign, raising vital
funds for United Way's impact areas: education, income and health. We're
proud to say that, through our partner, United Way, our employees support
nearly 800 local United Ways across the United States.
In the past decade, our employees, agents and retirees have pledged more than $88 million to United Way. The Nationwide Insurance Foundation matches their contributions dollar for dollar.
Nationwide employees participate in United Way Days of Caring in large numbers each year, too. Annually, about 1,200 of our employees spend a day volunteering at United Way partner agencies across the country.
In recognition of our strong support for United Way, Nationwide was named the 2008 United Way Spirit of America® Award winner. Also receiving the award in 2000, Nationwide is only the third company to earn the award twice.
"Together, with Nationwide's very generous support, United Way is creating stronger communities and improving millions of lives every year," said Brian Gallagher, United Way Worldwide president and CEO.
