2023 United Way

Grinnell Mutual exceeds United Way giving goal — again

Grinnell Mutual employees and matching funds from the Grinnell Mutual Group Foundation raised almost $152,000 in pledges and matching contributions during the company’s 2023 United Way fundraising campaign.

Employees pledged over $84,000, exceeding the company’s goal, as they have for at least eight consecutive years. They also broke their previous United Way donation record by over $7,000! The foundation contributed a $67,500 match.

“We have outstanding employees at Grinnell Mutual. Their long-standing support of philanthropic endeavors, including the United Way campaign reflects their generosity and compassion for others,” said Grinnell Mutual President and CEO Jeff Menary.

“Even in uncertain economic times, they came through for their communities. Our staff truly cares about helping others. That makes them very special and is the foundation for our company’s success.”

Funds from the campaign will be distributed to several different community United Way, United Funds, and Community Chest organizations where Grinnell Mutual employees live. 

Director of Advertising and Community Relations Barb Baker said, “Each year we appeal to our employees to give generously to their local communities, and our staff members continue to rise to that challenge. Our United Way fund drive provides much needed financial support to dozens of communities across our corporate footprint. We are very proud that our employees are passionate about helping their neighbors.”
