At MJ, our Purpose is more than insurance solutions; we are committed to inspiring the success, fulfillment and wellbeing of every person we serve, including our associates, clients, business partners and the community.
To best serve our communities, we take a focused approach—concentrating on two local charities where we can get actively involved. Every two years, our associates choose one charitable organization in each market to support as our Charity of Choice. This is where we focus much of our time and resources through the MJ Foundation.
Over the years, we have built strong relationships with these organizations and made meaningful contributions to support their missions. Our Charities of Choice align with the Foundation’s mission to overcome poverty, foster diversity, advance education and embrace humanity. Through our shared mission, we can nurture engagement and create meaningful impact.
We are delighted to introduce our selected charities for 2023-2025: Dayspring Center in Indianapolis, Women’s Bean Project in Denver and The Centers for Habilitation in Phoenix. MJ will highlight each charity for media exposure, deliver a $5,000 grant from the MJ Foundation and host a Day of Service with our MJ associates. Moreover, the chosen charities will receive a toolkit and media calendar.
