Annual campaign supports organizations in locations where employees work and live

AF Group employees pledged $266,750 in support of numerous charitable organizations around the country as part of the company’s recent Caring and Sharing Community Campaign. Together with a dollar-for-dollar corporate match, AF Group and its subsidiaries, including Accident Fund Insurance Company of America, United Heartland, Third Coast Underwriters and CompWest, will contribute $533,500 to 34 organizations nationwide throughout 2019.
