See how the insurance industry is giving back in the
IICF Western Division through our Early Literacy Initiative:



The vision of the IICF Early Literacy Initiative is to help provide every young child the opportunity to learn, read and write – regardless of economic circumstances – by delivering free literacy resources through the expansive network of IICF insurance industry supporters.

Developed in partnership with Sesame Workshop, Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day is a free, bilingual and research-based multimedia program that leverages the beloved Sesame Street characters to reach and motivate young children, their families and caregivers to make the most of everyday opportunities to talk, read and write together. This includes IICF having distributed 100,000 free copies of our storybook Book Buddies to children in underserved communities with the support of the insurance industry.

As leaders in this industry, we have the opportunity to share these resources and make an extraordinary impact on young lives here in the United States and the United Kingdom. Become an IICF Literacy Champion and make a difference in your community!
