Nationwide was founded more than 90 years ago as a mutual automobile insurance company, rooted in meeting the needs of our members in one state. Over time, we expanded into helping people across all 50 states protect their homes, livelihoods, businesses, pets and retirements. Today our mission has never been clearer: to protect people, businesses and futures with extraordinary care.
As we reflect on 2019, we’re proud of the many ways we’ve lived our mission every day, placing you, our valued member, at the center of our actions and decisions. From new products and solutions that help you prepare for retirement, drive safer and smarter, care for your pets or protect your business, to exceptional care during life’s most challenging moments — severe weather, the loss of a loved one, ups and downs in the financial markets or an unexpected event.
At the core of Nationwide beats the heart of a mutual insurer. We believe that serving you is an honor and a privilege. For Nationwiders, it’s about finding big and small ways to make a difference in the lives of others: a reassuring word after a home fire, expediting a 401(k) loan to cover a family emergency, successfully defending a business owner in a lawsuit or providing hands-on safety training for farm and ranch operators. We call these Mission Moments That MatterSM because delivering on our mission to protect you is our top priority and the reason we exist.
Our mission also extends into our communities through $40.6 million in philanthropic investments from the Nationwide Foundation, more than 106,000 volunteer hours by Nationwide associates, environmental stewardship that’s reduced our carbon footprint by 21 percent over nine years and a supplier diversity and inclusion program that fosters the growth and development of minority, women, lesbian, gay and veteran-owned enterprises.
Looking to the future, we’re excited about opportunities to make your life better, easier and more secure through innovative products and enhanced customer service. We’ve invested heavily in the people and technology needed to bring these opportunities to you, and we are energized about our future.
We understand you have choices, and we’re committed to making it easy for you to choose Nationwide for your protection needs. Thank you for being a part of the Nationwide family and placing your trust in us.
