Creating lasting
change

The Nationwide Foundation partners with organizations that create lasting change in our communities by focusing on four strategic impact areas: food security, crisis stability, social and economic empowerment, and children’s well-being.

Our associates’ dedication and the deep relationships with our national nonprofit partners make a strong impact across the country.

Fighting hunger

The Nationwide Foundation continued supporting Feeding America through a grant and an associate match that helped fund its national and local efforts. Additionally, associates contributed financially and through volunteerism to support Feeding America and other hunger relief agencies in communities we serve.

A helping hand in times of crisis

Before a crisis happens or after one hits, we hold the safety net. In addition to providing extraordinary care to our members through critical times, we provide resources to the American Red Cross to help people and communities survive.

As the situation in and around Ukraine intensified, many associates asked how they could help. The American Red Cross and Nationwide established a giving portal specifically for donations to support humanitarian relief efforts for Ukraine.

In the wake of Hurricane Ian, the Nationwide Foundation matched associate donations and made an additional $100,000 donation to its annual support of the American Red Cross disaster relief fund to assist those affected by the storm.

Advocating for change

We help enact change by sharing our expertise to build awareness in areas that impact our business, which not only benefits Nationwide and its customers, but also the communities where we live and work.

We supported bipartisan legislation in Ohio that provides income tax credits for beginning farmers. The new law supports beginning farmers who participate in financial management programs in addition to established landowners and producers who sell or rent land and agricultural assets.

In 2022, Nationwide’s advocacy efforts to enact hands-free legislation in Ohio paid off when Senate Bill 288 passed, making distracted driving a primary offense. Nationwide is committed to continue working with lawmakers in 25 other states to pass similar distracted driving laws to make roads safer for all.

As part of the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance, Nationwide helped fund and create an advertising campaign called Beat the Stigma to challenge the mindsets of Ohioans and eliminate stigmas associated with addiction and mental illness. Advertising for the campaign launched in 2021 and continued to run statewide throughout 2022.
