Ansvar Insurance has announced it will help fund 37 community projects this year, thus enabling hundreds of young people across Australia to participate in education outreach programs.
Ansvar Insurance provides insurance to the sectors of faith, care, not-for-profit, education and heritage.
The initiatives will help support homeless people, offer work skills to Aboriginal youth, and develop the capacity of teenagers with down-syndrome.
The CEO of Ansvar Insurance, Andrew Moon, said the insurance company’s grants would back organisations that were the backbone of Australia’s youth support network.
Every year, Ansvar Insurance allocates 10 per cent of its profit, annualised over three years, to the Community Education Program.
Applications for grants are invited in July, and a committee of Ansvar Insurance staff members assesses all submissions according to the objectives, activities and benefits of the planned youth-centred initiatives.
Mr Moon said the staff members of Ansvar Insurance were an integral part of the Community Education Program.
“Our employees get a real buzz from this grant program, because they regularly hear about the way it has empowered and supported Australians under the age of 25 years,” he said.
“We are an organisation with strong values and a sincere commitment to the community, and that is something the entire company is very proud of.”
In mid-2011, the company will mark 50 years as the insurer that cares for those who care for others.
