In response to the devastating earthquakes that recently occurred in Nepal, the OneBeacon community is supporting disaster relief efforts being coordinated through the American Red Cross. In addition to a $5,000 donation, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust is matching contributions made by members of our community, bringing the total OneBeacon donation to $9,000.
Thus far, the American Red Cross has committed $5 million to help the people of Nepal recover from the earthquakes and aftershocks. In addition to the deployment of disaster specialists, the American Red Cross is contributing relief supplies such as jerry cans, tarps and kitchen sets, and is providing remote mapping and information management support.
We are pleased to be in a position to support the organization’s humanitarian efforts. Reinforced by their generous contributions, members of our community continue to send healing thoughts and prayers to those affected by the earthquakes.
The OneBeacon Charitable Trust is a 501(C) (3) organization dedicated to supporting nonprofits that matter most to OneBeacon employees and producer partners. The annual community giving programs support leadership and philanthropic efforts in addition to advancing education through a matching gift program and a college scholarship program.
