The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) was born from the passion of insurance professionals to make a positive community impact. IICF strengthens the philanthropic impact of the insurance industry by facilitating collaboration, coordination, and camaraderie. Working together as a united industry, IICF helps communities and enriches lives through grants, volunteer service, and leadership.


IICF is an international organization committed to making an impact on the local community level. Since inception, IICF has contributed $25.3 million to local community nonprofits.

In 2015, $1,836,292 in community grants was awarded to 145 nonprofits across the country.

IICF is proud to support the industry through three major leadership initiatives, the Early Literacy Initiative, the Women in Insurance Conference Series, and Standards, Benchmarks and Measurements.

Early Learning Initiative

Through our Early Literacy Initiative (ELI), IICF has partnered with Sesame Workshop to create a free, bilingual early literacy program entitled, “Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day”. IICF’s focus is raising awareness of the importance of early literacy and distributing the “Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day” program materials to underserved children, families and caregivers who could benefit the most.
