At WCF Insurance, we believe in community. We focus on building relationships,  volunteering in the community, and financially supporting local organizations and individuals where we do business. 

LEGACY OF LEARNING

In 1990, WCF Insurance started the Legacy of Learning Scholarship Program to give educational assistance to spouses and children of workers who lost their lives in compensable industrial accidents while working for WCF policyholders. In 2020, we celebrated the program’s 30th year. Legacy of Learning helps people realize educational goals that, because of the loss of a breadwinner, they might not have otherwise achieved. With the presentation of this year’s 21 Legacy of Learning scholarships, WCF has awarded over 1,220 scholarships to families in excess of $2.25 million since 1990.

DR. PAUL S. RICHARDS WORKPLACE SAFETY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

2020 Paul S Richards
WCF Insurance awards scholarships to graduate students as part of the Dr. Paul S. Richards Safe Workplace Scholarship Program who are studying at the University of Utah’s Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health. The program began in 1997 to help facilitate education and training of students committed to a career of keeping workplaces safe and protecting workers. Scholarships are awarded to graduate students in the fields of occupational medicine, safety and ergonomics, and industrial hygiene. In 2020, we awarded $16,500 to 16 scholarship recipients.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE SAFETY GRANTS

WCF Insurance offers safety grants to qualifying policyholders to assist in funding workplace safety initiatives for the prevention of injuries and promotion of workplace safety awareness. We match funds up to $1,000. Safety grant applications are accepted each year from January through May. In 2020, we were able to help 42 policyholders with their safety needs, 21 of whom specifically needed COVID-19-related assistance. Policyholders can apply here.

EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

WCF Insurance’s volunteer policy allows each full-time employee to use four work hours each month to participate in volunteer programs. Once each month, for the past 16 years, WCF employees have staffed the kitchen at the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Hall in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we had to scale that back because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but employees were still able to get out into the community to help those in need.

In 2020, 89 WCF EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEERED MORE THAN 484 HOURS TO 38 ORGANIZATIONS.

NEUROWEEK

Neuroweek is an annual, week-long fundraising campaign organized and executed by WCF Insurance employees for pediatric care provided by Neuroworx, an outpatient physical therapy clinic focused on rehabilitation for individuals experiencing paralysis from various neurological conditions. The week features several fundraising opportunities for employees, members of the community, and sponsors, such as a golf tournament, a family movie night, chance drawings, and a field day. All proceeds raised through Neuroweek go directly to benefit Neuroworx’s mission.
