At ERIE, we believe in investing in our communities and in the lives of others. We give our time, talent and resources in three key areas of focus.
We support the United Way and projects for urban revitalization and basic human needs. We also help culture and arts initiatives, entrepreneurialism and education.
We support the disaster relief efforts of the American Red Cross and other programs that help keep individuals and families safe and out of harm’s way.
We plant community gardens and help programs that use resources, energy and new technologies responsibly.
Our employees and agents build homes, feed families and tutor young students. Through the ERIE Service Corps, employees also spend up to a full workday volunteering in the community. Other employee initiatives such as the Matching Gifts program, the H.O. Hirt Scholarship Fund and the F.W. Hirt Employee Emergency Fund help address the financial needs of community organizations, students and others. Insurance agents who are wholeheartedly committed to community service can receive an annual grant to give to their favorite nonprofit organizations.
