National Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL) is pleased to announce that its 2021 sponsorships and corporate gift combined with employees’ personal pledges and donations totaled over $150,000 to support United Way of Dane County.
“United Way of Dane County is a powerful community organizer that is known for bringing people together to work toward changing lives and making a measurable impact. Giving back to our community is woven into NGL’s legacy and I’m proud our team members continue to support United Way because it’s an important component of who we are as a company,” said Knut Olson, NGL president and CEO.
For more than 70 years NGL has proudly partnered with and supported United Way of Dane County. Funding to United Way of Dane County is focused on the areas of education, income, and health with the goals to help build a community where everyone can succeed in school, work and life.
In addition to NGL’s corporate donation of $75,000 and employee payroll deductions, employees generously donate through fundraising events. Each year, the NGL employee campaign incorporates a variety of activities to donate to and participate in. The virtual employee fundraisers included bingo, trivia nights, silent auction and a fitness challenge.
Olson continued, “This has been another unpredictable and challenging year. Unfortunately, the educational and economic disparities in Dane County continue to grow during this unprecedented time. I’m grateful to everyone who stepped up to help make our annual campaign a success not only for NGL but for our community. I would like to extend my appreciation to all of our team members who donated and volunteered for our United Way campaign, our Loaned Executive and the remarkable team at United Way that equips us with the resources and tools needed to organize and coordinate our campaign.”
