Company Turns Free Auto Insurance Quotes Into Dollars for Charity

Mother tickling child in car seatPeople can look for cheap auto insurance quotes online and help charities at the same time through 21st Century’s new 21st4Charity program.

Through the program, $10 will be donated to non-profit groups whenever consumers get car insurance quotes online from the company.

The auto insurance company’s website will feature non-profit agencies that individuals can select their donation to go to.

The initiative by 21st Century Insurance stands to benefit both consumers and Delaware chapters of two non-profits.

The March of Dimes organization is one charity that will benefit from funds raised through the initiative. The organization aims to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

The research funded by the March of Dimes has contributed to the fight against many serious conditions. Most notably, the charity helped fund research efforts that resulted in the beating of polio.

The auto insurance company will also be partnering with the Special Olympics, and more charities may be added to the initiative depending on the success of 21st4Charity.

A number of non-profit organizations have reported a decline in giving during the economic downturn. With unemployment at 9.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, many people cannot afford to give to organizations.

Communications and community relations manager for 21st Century Insurance in Delaware Jaynine Warner says getting a free online auto insurance quote will help consumers and charities.

“We’d like to raise the awareness level of these local charities, as well,” stated Warner. “They are doing great work that benefits many of us, and we’d like more people to know about the tremendous contributions they make.”

The auto insurance company has engaged in other initiatives aimed at helping people. Recently, 21st Century Insurance launched a safety zone program aimed at reminding motorists to be mindful of children returning to school.
