The OneBeacon® Community Giving Program enables the company to give back to the communities where our employees live and work through a combination of charitable donations and volunteer efforts.
The OneBeacon Charitable Trust awards annual scholarship to the children of our employees; matches your United Way campaign donation; and supports many employees' personal efforts to support nonprofits large and small. The Trust also supports the educational matching gift program.
As a general rule, the maximum annual contribution amount honored by the Trust is $500 for one-time fund raisers that employees may participate in, including but not limited to, walks, runs, and cycling events. The maximum annual contribution amount honored by the Trust is $1,500 for requests to support nonprofits that OneBeacon employees are actively involved with either as volunteers or in leadership roles. Our Corporate Giving Guidelines can be found under the Community Giving section on the employee intranet.
The Matching Gift program provides a dollar-for-dollar match to the secondary school, college or university of your choice, up to a maximum of $1,500. Forms are available on the HR section of the OneBeacon Portal.
Remember, we give priority consideration to organizations or activities in which OneBeacon employees act as volunteers or board members. This support includes flexibility in your schedule to attend meetings and events during the workday (with the approval of your manager, of course), plus a charitable gift for every 40 hours of community service you provide (as certified by the charitable organization).
