About us

Our Background

Formally designated in March 2018, the NAMIC Mutual Insurance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization designed to help foster the continued growth of a strong and invigorated mutual insurance industry.

The primary focus of the Foundation is to facilitate tax-advantaged donations to support the foundation's growing scholarship fund. In future years, the Foundation will have the opportunity to take on other projects and initiatives on behalf of the mutual insurance industry, including public policy work, industry research, academic work, grants, and public education. All activities will reflect NAMIC and its members’ continued commitment to the future of the mutual insurance industry.
