Corporate Responsibility

When Farmers Insurance® began its operations in 1928, our founders instilled values of service and charity throughout the organization. More than 90 years later, Farmers® remains committed to serving the communities where our customers, agents and employees live, work and play.

Take a look at some of the ways we gave back to our communities in 2019:

We are proud to have helped make a difference in our communities over the past five years through 242,500 employee volunteer hours and $21,300,000 donated to charitable causes. We look forward to continuing to serve our communities for years to come.


OUR VALUES

Giving back, serving others and making a positive impact in communities across the nation is at the core of Farmers® social responsibility efforts.

One of the major ways we put our values into action is through our philanthropic efforts focused on disaster resilience. Aiming to help reduce the impact and risk of disasters on communities, we strive to make a difference through enhancing disaster resilience in the areas of preparedness, response and recovery.

NONPROFIT PARTNERS

As Farmers strives to maintain a high standard of responsible corporate citizenship, we donate our time and resources to nonprofits that help make a difference in our communities. We have strategically aligned ourselves with four national nonprofits: SBP, Team Rubicon, Operation BBQ Relief and National First Responders Fund.

SBP

SBP’s mission is to help shrink time between disaster and full recovery by working with communities prior to a disaster and helping disaster-impacted citizens and communities recover in a prompt, efficient and predictable manner. Since its founding in 2006, SBP has directly rebuilt homes for more than 1,888 families with the help of more than 180,000 volunteers in cities across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Operation BBQ Relief

Operation BBQ Relief provides comfort to those in need by connecting, inspiring, serving, and educating in communities far and wide. The nonprofit was founded in May 2011 in response to a need for relief efforts in tornado-stricken Joplin, Missouri, and continues to respond to natural disasters and other situations to help feed displaced residents and emergency personnel.

National First Responders Fund

First responders are there for us on our worst days. For this reason, the National First Responders Fund was founded on the idea of becoming a trusted source of resources and assistance dedicated to every first responder with a touch-point to emergency incidents. NFRF is developing programs to address specific needs related to first responders and their families, including post-traumatic stress treatment, cancer prevention, toxic exposure, chemical dependency and critical incident support, outreach and activation.
