Providing assurance through community giving

Our business is providing property-casualty insurance solutions to protect specialty risks. And maybe because we’re in the risk business, we care about supporting the financial security of our less fortunate neighbors. Through the  OneBeacon Charitable Trust, we help those nonprofits where our employees and producers volunteer and donate. In recognition of the holiday season, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust donated $50,000 to 20 food banks and other nonprofits located in communities where OneBeacon employees live and work. Several of our offices also collected food, toys and gifts to support holiday drives large and small. 

On behalf of the entire OneBeacon family, we wish you joy and peace during this holiday season!
