Who We Support
Here are some of the organizations the Hiscox Foundation USA supports.
Kiva’s mission is to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive. Kiva crowdfunds loans for the underserved, improves the quality and cost of financial services, and addresses barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva’s work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.

The Hiscox USA Foundation selects one employee-nominated organization each year to receive a $10,000 grant. The employee must actively volunteer for the organization, and submit a nomination form describing the organization’s impact.
Recent recipients of this grant include:
Bundles of Joy
Bundles of Joy collects new and “nearly new” items through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are sorted, bundled and delivered to disadvantaged children through their network of social service agencies, shelters, hospitals and school partners. Hiscox employee Stephanie Stoddard spends time with the charity sorting collections and creating ‘bundles’ to be delivered to a shelter location in White Plains as needed.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
The Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families with children in nearby hospitals. Families who live more than 50 miles from the hospital can stay for free. All meals are donated and served by volunteers. Hiscox employee Meagan Pind assists with tasks such as disinfecting toys, storing pantry items, and helping with check-ins. She has also volunteered at numerous fundraising events throughout the years.
The Hiscox Foundation USA also supports those organizations that are important to Hiscox employees with a matching gift program.
The Hiscox Foundation USA supports non-profit, community-based charitable organizations. Given the Foundation’s grant selection process is employee driven, the Foundation does not accept external requests for contributions
