  1. 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 […]

  2. Playing for a cause

    Who doesn’t enjoy spending time outdoors late summer, just to savor those final moments of warmth and sunshine – especially if you work in Minnesota! That’s what our OBTI colleagues from Minnetonka thought when they decided to enjoy a day on the golf course. But don’t worry; they weren’t playing hooky. They were actually playing […]

  3. Singer, Composer, Founder, Co-Chair

    When we’re passionate about something, it’s easy to give it our all, but those words don’t quite do justice to Claims’ Judi Lamble’s involvement in the Twin Cities Jewish Chorale. In the fall of 2009 a group of Jewish music lovers met to develop a new Jewish choral group in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. […]

  4. Industry Education: Playing for a Cause

    Can you name this 50-something that hangs out with a panther and is solely focused on fund raising to support insurance education? If you guessed The Georgia State University Risk Management Foundation, then you’re absolutely right! Georgia State is one of a limited number of universities that offers risk management and insurance education. This supporting foundation […]

  5. OneBeacon for One Fund

    In response to the recent Boston Marathon bombings, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick established The One Fund to collect donations for the families and businesses directly impacted by this tragedy. Their goal was simple – by very quickly creating this entity, the community could focus all contributions to a single organization. […]

  6. Soup’s On!

    …in our Salem office that is, along with peanut butter, crackers and more by the boxful. But before you wonder about the local menu, Salem was actually collecting donations for the community’s annual “Soup for Seniors” food drive.  And collect they did. Last year, they felt pretty good donating 428 food items but this year, they bested […]

  8. Holiday Gifts that Keep On Giving!

    We hope you enjoyed hearing about the community goodwill enabled by the Charitable Trust’s holiday donations around the country. We just received some photos from OBGR San Antonio shown delivering their donation to ThriveWell, a San Antonio-based cancer foundation whose mission is to help patients “survive and thrive.” Brian Latimer and Mary Herrera (right) are […]

  9. Remembering our Neighbors

    Each holiday season, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust has made funds available for many of our offices to make a donation to a local nonprofit. Whether a local food pantry or a children’s hospital, these are opportunities to support those entities doing some good in your local communities. This year, a number of you were able […]

  10. Holiday eCard Donations: Thanks for your votes!

    This holiday season our animated holiday e-card featured a very special charitable giving component. Those who received the card were able to cast their vote among three worthy nonprofit organizations selected to receive a share of $30,000 from the OneBeacon Charitable Trust. After nearly 1,000 votes from OneBeacon producers, vendors and partners, the tally for […]
