About MJ

MJ Insurance is dedicated to inspiring the success, fulfillment, and wellbeing of each person we serve.

That includes giving back to the communities where we live and work, and supporting local organizations that are making a positive difference. Our associate volunteer service hours and charitable donation matching programs are designed to reinforce and encourage our culture of giving back to the community.

Every two years, MJ Insurance chooses two charitable organizations—one in Indianapolis and one in Phoenix—where we focus the majority of our time and resources. In order to best serve our communities, we take a more focused approach concentrating on two local charities of choice where we get actively involved in the charity itself.

Our team has spent thousands of hours giving back, helping make our community a brighter place.
We partner with dozens of charitable organizations making a big impact in our communities.

Making A Difference

We are actively supporting the following two organizations:
  • Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center

    Established in 1997, the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) is an internationally recognized nonprofit organization dedicated to autism research, education, evidence-based treatment, and community outreach. SARRC is one of the only autism organizations in the world that provides a lifetime of services for individuals and their families while also conducting cutting edge research. Their mission is to advance research and provide a lifetime of support for individuals with autism and their families.

  • Humane Society for Hamilton County

    The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) is currently Indiana’s only open admission,  no-kill animal shelter. The HSHC gives every treatable, savable, rehabilitable animal the second chance it deserves and every chance at finding a forever home.

    With an open admission policy, a no-kill philosophy and more than 3,000 animals crossing its threshold each year, the HSHC maintains a 98% placement rate. Its mission:  Saving Lives, Educating Communities, Completing Families.

Food 4 Souls

Food 4 Souls is a homeless ministry that exists to go out and serve the homeless community in Indianapolis with unconditional love and acceptance. Every Sunday afternoon, a group of volunteers travel to downtown Indianapolis providing clothing, food and other resources to the homeless community. Nearly 100 people are served every week with approximately 5,000 meals and thousands of toiletry items being distributed this year. This involvement and commitment not only provides the opportunity for volunteers to tangibly serve, but also plays a critical and necessary role in building trusting relationships with the homeless in our community.
