Case Study: Season of CARing

The Season of CARing is Hagerty’s enterprise-wide fourth quarter giving program. It encompasses everything from individual giving, to Hagerty-hosted activities, as well as global giving efforts in our homes/offices around the world.

During this time, a Hagerty team member organized a donation drive challenge with his team and shared this about what it meant to him:

“One of the most important things to me is helping others, especially those in need. Being able to do so with the support of your employer, and the people you work with, is an amazing feeling.”

COVID-19 Relief: Hagerty Heroes.

03

Case Study: Hagerty Heroes

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hagerty created Hagerty Heroes for employees to participate in a series of virtual races for charity. Hagerty matched $1 for every mile that Hagerty team members ran, walked, biked, swam, or paddled for each race. From March through November, Hagerty’s employees raised over $35,000 together for COVID relief, contributing to personal protective equipment for healthcare professionals, community emergency funds, small businesses, first responders and arts and culture in the communities near our offices. One Hagerty Hero shared her experience:

“Being a part of the Hagerty Heroes group helped motivate me to not only continue my training [program] but to run a half [marathon] virtually. Connecting with other team members and knowing I was helping those in need inspired me.”

We invited community members to post a picture or logo of their favorite small businesses to Instagram in November and December 2020 with #HagertyDrivingGratitude and we committed to donate $25 per post to SCORE, up to $25,000.
