Chesapeake Employers' Insurance Company in the Community

Caring for Marylanders is something our employees and our organization are passionate about doing. Our giving spirit permeates through all we do at work and in the community. On an ongoing basis, the community can count on Chesapeake Employers to provide volunteers, assistance and leadership. At the heart of our efforts is the Chesapeake Employers & You Charitable Program.

Goals & Mission of Our Charitable Program

To support charitable organizations or causes that are based in Maryland or have a local Maryland chapter and strive to improve the quality of life for Maryland’s citizens, with particular priority given to those that support the education and development of children, strengthen families in need and  promote safety and health in the community and workplace.

  • To provide small grants to eligible charitable organizations and causes, which have a 501(c)3 tax exempt status and meet Maryland-based requirements, as stated above.
  • To match the charitable cash donations of Chesapeake Employers’ employees.
  • To encourage Chesapeake employees to VolunCheer in the community by providing 12 hours of paid time.

Please visit our Chesapeake Employers’ Facebook page for the latest highlights, photos and videos of our company and employees’ VolunCheer efforts in the community.
