Chubb Charitable Foundation

Education

Chubb is helping to support the expansion of educational opportunities around the world through its support of Teach for All, a global network of more than 40 independent, locally led and governed partner organizations that enlists promising leaders to teach in economically disadvantaged, high-need communities for two years, and, in the long-term, drive systemic changes in their community.  Chubb provides funding for teacher recruitment and training programs in Colombia and Mexico and a Teach For Thailand grant to help ensure participants’ impact on student growth while cultivating a thriving alumni community. Chubb’s investment in Teach for America increases its efforts to expand and support a diverse network of leaders who amplify opportunities for students in low-income communities. Together we share a commitment in pursuing educational equity for children.

Per Scholas

Per Scholas is a national nonprofit that provides rigorous and tuition-free technology training and professional development to people who are unemployed or in low-wage jobs. Chubb has supported the development and implementation of Per Scholas’ tech curriculum, advancing economic opportunity through rigorous tech career training for groups significantly underrepresented in IT roles. The organization helps people launch successful and life-changing careers in technology, creating on-ramps to businesses that need their talents. The Chubb Charitable Foundation has provided support to Per Scholas’ New York City program since 2012.

Environment

The Chubb Charitable Foundation supports a wide range of environmental philanthropies in local communities around the world. Through these initiatives, Chubb promotes a healthy and sustainable planet, strengthens the resilience of communities and protects biodiversity against the effects of climate change. Chubb has supported The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in various conservation projects globally for nearly a decade. Chubb supports the Resilience Project in Miami-Dade County, which aims to make a compelling case for increased investment of public and private dollars to finance mangrove restoration and produce a foundation upon which to dramatically reduce flood damages in the face of rising seas and more severe storms.

Poverty & Health

The Foundation has long supported the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps individuals affected by crisis and conflict rebuild their lives. In 2018, the Foundation made a three-year grant to support the organization’s Jobs to Careers program, offering basic career training to help refugees enter higher-skill, higher-wage jobs in the U.S.

Employee Volunteerism 

At Chubb, we encourage the development of initiatives that reflect our employees’ commitment to the needs of their local and regional communities. Through national campaigns, local volunteer projects and other initiatives, Chubb supports employee giving and volunteerism with a variety of programs.

Cocalico Education Foundation

The Cocalico Education Foundation seeks to support and enhance the educational and cultural opportunities for all people in the Cocalico area community. We want to enrich the education, values, and culture experience of students and adults by extending the current educational opportunities with creative and innovative programs.

Scholarships

The Cocalico Education Foundation monitors and awards the following scholarships and endowments annually to Cocalico High School seniors: Brian C. Ferree Scholarship, Clyde S. Kulp Memorial Music Award Scholarship, Cocalico Education Foundation Continuing Education Scholarships, Floyd W. Sweigart Memorial Music Education Scholarship, Katlynn A. Burkholder Memorial Scholarship, Lauren Trefny Memorial Scholarship, Mitch Hummel Memorial Fund Scholarship, Richard Sensenig Roofing Company U.S. Government Scholarship, Ryan Kramer Memorial Fund Scholarship.

In 2020, the CEF awarded $3,000 in scholarships to deserving Cocalico seniors. These scholarships include those funded directly by the CEF and those managed by the CEF as a result of donations designated for students with particular talents and/or career goals.

Cocalico Family Fund

The Cocalico Family Fund was started in 2009 as a way to provide families with financial assistance for items that are often not covered by other systems. Since then, the Cocalico Family Fund has helped families by funding numerous items like the following: Eyeglasses, prescription medication, psychological evaluations, rental assistance, food, uniforms for the CTC, supplies for school graduation, funeral assistance, educational trips, summer school, medical supplies and dental services.

The Cocalico Care Center (CCC), the Cocalico Education Foundation (CEF), and the Cocalico School District (CSD) are collaborating to provide some much-needed support for Cocalico families who have children ages Birth-5. Together, we have established the role of a Early Learning Mentor. Providing resources and supports to children and their caregivers before they begin school will promote language, literacy, and numeracy skill development. In turn, this will decrease the children’s need for intensive remediation and support after entering Kindergarten; it will also increase the quality of their eventual contributions to the local community.
