Congratulations to The Standard!

April 28,2016 | By Cara Rene, VP of Stakeholder Relations
Community giving through The Standard increases significantly with surprise announcement.

Standard Insurance Company announced recently that Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company, the Tokyo-based company which acquired The Standard last summer, will provide an additional match to all employee donations made during the 2016 employee giving campaign.

In 2015, employees at The Standard pledged more than $1.1 million to schools and nonprofit organizations across the country. The Standard matched those gifts for a total distribution of $2.2 million. This year, there will be the additional match from Meiji Yasuda as well – likely breaking all previous giving records.

“We want our communities to know that our commitment to making a positive difference is as strong today as it was more than a century ago,” says Greg Ness, chairman, president and CEO of the Standard. “And it will continue well into the future.
