We think differently because our customers think differently.

We operate a little differently than most insurers — we don’t work for our customers; we work with them because their work is vital to the strength of our communities. We’re proud to say that we’ve been an advocate and an innovator for our customers since our founding in 1947.

In 1962, we recognized that community organizations needed an affordable, efficient insurance product that rolled many coverages into one. To fulfill the needs of our customers and our communities, we developed the first multi-peril policy, protection against different kinds of losses all covered under one package, making it more convenient and more economical to insure your organization.

More than 50 years later, our values haven’t changed. With an eye on the ever-evolving world around us, we continue to create policies that protect the people who strengthen our communities through their work for churches, educational institutions, senior living communities and nonprofit organizations.

We are licensed in all 50 states and operate through a network of thousands of independent agents who serve more than 51,000 commercial policyholders.
