Community Matters: Insurance Partners of CharlotteMaking a Difference in Charlotte One Cause at a Time
Who We Are
Community Matters is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that provides unique philanthropic opportunities for insurance and risk management professionals in the greater Charlotte area.
Our industry employs people who have pursued insurance careers in order to enhance the lives of others. We are showing that “community matters” by focusing on real community needs through fundraising events, work days, educational opportunities and much more.
Our 2020 Nonprofit Partner: Charlotte Rescue Mission
Charlotte Rescue Mission is transforming lives by serving people struggling with addiction, poverty, or hopelessness with the goal of returning them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
While supporting and volunteering at CRM’s two campuses in Charlotte, we have also joined with the mission to launch Community Matters Café, a unique joint venture between our two organizations. The café will employ graduates of the men’s and women’s programs, creating a safe space for them to experience personal and professional growth while staying focused on recovery.
