  1. OBGR Partners with Univ. of Colorado to Offer Annual Scholarship

    Our Government Risks group recently announced its new partnership with the University of Colorado at Denver’s Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Program to offer an annual scholarship to students enrolled in the program. Each year, the University will award $2,000 in scholarship money funded by the OneBeacon Charitable Trust on behalf of OBGR. Students will […]

  2. Running for Research

    Without a doubt, Boston and its historic Marathon are viewing the 2014 race as symbol of hope and resiliency. This year’s event will include at least two OneBeacon participants – Admin Services’ Paul Newman and Operations’ Chris Marini. Both are experienced marathoners, with Paul finding himself less than a mile from the finish line last […]

  3. Wounded Warrior Project Extends Personal Thank-You

    You may recall that we asked recipients of our 2013 holiday e-card to cast their vote among three worthy nonprofits—Wounded Warrior Project, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Feeding America—selected to receive a share of $30,000 from our Charitable Trust. As a result of its receiving 47% of total votes, OneBeacon donated $14,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, a […]

  4. 2013: Your Year of Giving

    We thought you’d enjoy seeing which organizations were supported by the OneBeacon Charitable Trust in 2013. In total, 107 donations were awarded last year. And remember that each donation represents an act of volunteerism, fundraising or contribution by one of our colleagues. As well, some of these contributions represent a donation offered in support of a OneBeacon producer. The […]

  5. Keeping Warm at the Pine Street Inn

    While many of us have been complaining about the polar vortex, at least we have our offices and homes to keep us warm. It’s always humbling to remember those less fortunate during such unforgiving weather – and to applaud the care offered through certain nonprofits during these roughest days of winter. One such Boston organization is the […]

  6. Yankee Swap Swapped Out!

    Many of us enjoy the surprises associated with a “Yankee Swap” (or as it’s known in some parts – a “White Elephant” gift exchange) during the holidays. Whether at work or among family, it’s a fun way to celebrate the season, with guaranteed laughter along the way. But you’ve got to hand it to our […]

  7. Tis’ the Season to Show Our (O)BIG Support!

    This holiday season, our Charitable Trust has again made a generous donation of more than $50,000 to nonprofits in those communities where we have a presence. Each of our offices identified a worthy organization (listed below) where it may already volunteer or offer support, or that is simply well recognized for helping a meaningful cause. […]

  8. Together Again!

    When Claims’ Wendy Gottorff makes a commitment, she doesn’t take it lightly. For example, consider her volunteering efforts for a youth mentoring program. She’s consistently put in about 100 hours annually since 2007 and you guessed it; she’s been mentoring the same young girl for each of these seven years. Wendy volunteers as a mentor […]

  9. Providing A Warm Welcome Home for Valued Veterans

    As President of the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 225, IT’s Maria Diamond recently initiated a “Welcome Home Basket” donation drive for military veterans.  Through the holiday season, Maria and her close-knit team of volunteers are seeking the donation of household items to create housewarming baskets for homeless veterans transitioning into new homes. Last year, […]

  10. All the World’s a Stage or at least at Park Square!

    As we spend our days working hard on our specialty business, an evening of live entertainment can be a terrific way to relax. Whether it’s music, sports or theatre, there is little that rivals experiencing such events in person. Claims’ Joe Schmitt wants to make sure his neighbors enjoy access to live theatre, which is […]
