Hagerty Consulting believes in good corporate citizenship and is proud to support several Evanston non-profit organizations, especially those that offer programs to help children reach their potential, support homeless people become independent, and teach violence prevention and racial equity.  We also support emergency management education.  Recent grantees include the Maxwell School of Syracuse University and New York City’s Urban Assembly School for Emergency Management.

The April 2015 earthquake in Nepal overwhelmed us with feelings of sadness for the loss of life and concern about the plight of the survivors. On April 30, we joined forces with Evanston-based Mt. Everest Restaurant to raise money for Nepal earthquake survivors with a buffet lunch fundraiser. Hagerty Consulting supported the relief effort through a donation to AmeriCares, a non-profit emergency response and global health organization. At the fundraiser, donations to AmeriCares received at the door in the form of checks or online donations were matched 100% by Steve Hagerty.

Hagerty Consulting employees were also encouraged to donate to any non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) designation helping the Nepal relief effort; each donation would be matched 100% by Steve.

The final total raised from the fundraising luncheon, Hagerty employees, and the match was $20,600, of which $20,000 was sent directly to AmeriCares for Nepali earthquake relief. You can read more about the community’s participation here and here.

In the fall of 2015 Hagerty Consulting signed on as a corporate sponsor to Northwestern University‘s 2016 Dance Marathon, one of the largest and most well established student-run philanthropies in the nation. This year’s chartity is Blessings in a Backpack, a leading hunger organization that mobilizes communities, individuals and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. The secondary partner and beneficiary to NUDM is the Evanston Community Foundation, a local organization near and dear to our hearts. Watch this brief video clip to learn more.
