 Worcester-based insurer, The Hanover, today announced the results of its annual employee giving campaign, raising $1.5 million for United Way and other non-profit organizations across the country. 

More than 3,500 employees, representing 82% of the company’s workforce, took part in the campaign, raising more than $1 million. In total, the campaign raised $1.5 million, including a matching contribution from The Hanover Insurance Group Foundation. The campaign benefits countless individuals and families in need, providing support and services through non-profit organizations across the country. Throughout 2022, donations will be paid out to 111 United Way chapters and more than 1,500 non-profits.

The Hanover has held this annual campaign to solicit pledges for United Way agencies and non-profits across the country for more than 70 years. The company’s United Way campaign has one of the highest participation rates in the world among companies that are part of the United Way’s Global Corporate Leadership program, and has a participation rate five times the national average.

“Throughout the year, our company and our employees are there when it matters most, helping our friends and neighbors in need,” said John C. Roche, president and chief executive officer at The Hanover. “I am incredibly proud of our employees, who continue to recognize the important role non-profits are playing in our communities, especially during the ongoing pandemic, and generously stepped up to help support so many individuals and families in communities across the country.”

“We are grateful for the long-time partnership of The Hanover Insurance Group and its employees, who have supported our communities with their annual campaign,” said Angela F. Williams, president and CEO of United Way Worldwide. “The employee and corporate participation rates for The Hanover are certainly impressive; and it’s this generosity that enables community partners and United Way to continue to provide vital services to individuals everywhere.”
