Insurance agency partners with nonprofit to benefit students

FORT COLLINS — A Fort Collins independent insurance agency hopes to leverage a corporate contribution to help a nonprofit create a Northern Colorado program to assist students facing chronic poverty.

Fort Collins Insurance has received a $5,000 award as part of Make More Happen, an awards program of Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance. Liberty and Safeco will double the award to $10,000 if Fort Collins Insurance’s effort receives at least 500 votes online.

Fort Collins Insurance is working with Grace Upon Grace Project, a nonprofit organization that provides under-served families and infants with diapers, wipes and period products.

Beginning Monday, June 6, the story of Fort Collins Insurance and Grace Upon Grace Project will be spotlighted on the official Make More Happen microsite at www.agentgiving.com/Fort-Collins-Insurance, where supporters can vote to help the team reach its donation goal. If the featured story receives at least 500 votes — shares to social media and comments on their story — the donation will be increased to $10,000.

The Grace Upon Grace Project hopes to “educate and end period poverty by working with local school districts to offer free supplies so that no girl misses school due to a period or must use inadequate products that can cause infections,” according to a press statement from Fort Collins Insurance. The insurance agency volunteers time by crafting period kits that include hand-written notes, hosting donation drives and donating monthly to help the organization buy period products, diapers, and wipes.

“Supporting this nonprofit was a no-brainer for us, and we absolutely love the education piece and getting into the schools that they are working with and seeing progress,” said Jackie Jackson, an agent for Fort Collins Insurance. 

The $10,000 donation will fund the launch of the project’s Northern Colorado Program that will support students experiencing chronic period poverty. The money will also help launch Grace Upon Grace Project’s pilot program to provide access to period products in school bathrooms.                              

Liberty and Safeco will provide awards to up to 37 independent agents nationwide in its Make More Happen Awards donating up to $370,000.
