Awards and Recognition

Federated Insurance will receive the Community Impact Award from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America on June 28, 2018. This award honors corporate partners who make significant contributions to help support youth mentoring.

Federated Insurance was also awarded the Corporate Excellence in Youth Mentoring Award from MENTOR in honor of their support of youth mentoring.

Federated Employees Embrace the Mission

Jeff and Marty’s passion for youth mentoring started early on when they signed up to be a Big Couple through Big Brothers Big Sisters. They were matched with their Little, Mackenzie, who was 11 years old at the time. The Fetters stood by Mackenzie’s side through her formative years and helped guide her through her high school years. They nurtured Mackenzie’s love for cooking by helping her enroll in culinary school after high school and have since watched her grow and thrive in her career as a head chef at a local Country Club.

Federated employees also support this important cause. Many employees themselves are Bigs and close to 100 employees plan and participate in the Federated Challenge each year. It is common to see Federated employees engaged and involved in different activities that raise awareness and funds for the cause.
