Nationwide’s Make Safe Happen® program celebrated the second annual Home Fire Drill Day last October, a safety awareness event developed to encourage families across the country to practice fire drills at home. Caregivers were given access to life-saving tips, safety information and fire drill games at HomeFireDrillDay.com, as well as the Make Safe Happen app1.
As part of Make Safe Happen, Nationwide has partnered with the American Red Cross to install nearly 1 million smoke alarms in homes across the country.
Together with its Advisory Council, including Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Safe Kids Worldwide, the Make Safe Happen program has delivered over 5.4 million safety actions to date in 2017 with the goal of reducing childhood accidental injury and death.
The Nationwide Foundation supports Feeding America, its National Produce Program and 22 of its member food banks across the nation, granting more than $14.2 million since 2000. Last year, Nationwide associates raised nearly 3.5 million meals2 for Feeding America food banks.
Our associates have been giving to United Way since our first workplace campaign in 1951. The Nationwide Foundation began matching their contributions dollar for dollar in the 1960s. Our associates, partners and retirees have pledged more than $136.9 million since 2000.
Giving blood has been a tradition at Nationwide since 1944. And today, we work with blood partners across the country, giving around 16,000 pints annually. As a founding member of the Annual Disaster Giving Program, the Nationwide Foundation helps the Red Cross with immediate resources to respond to disasters. Since 2000, the Nationwide Foundation has contributed $16.5 million to American Red Cross disaster relief.
For more than 60 years, Nationwide has been working with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to help ensure every child has access to quality medical care. In 2014, the Nationwide Foundation established the Nationwide Foundation Pediatric Innovation Fund with $40 million in grants committed since that time to support key clinical and research efforts.
 The app is owned by Nationwide Children's Hospital and developed by the safety experts in their Center for Injury Research and Policy.
 Number of meals calculated by Nationwide is based on annual cash and food donations made between 2000-2017 to Feeding America member food banks using their local meal conversion rate.
