The Tradition

On a beautiful October day in 1996, Chubb's Murray Hill office hosted the first Chubb Charity Challenge for twenty-five producers at New Jersey's Metedeconk Golf Club. Local New Jersey charities received $25,000 in donations from the event. The producers had a wonderful time and again supported a New Jersey Charity Challenge in 1997 and again in 1998.

It was thought that combining an event for Chubb's agents and their chosen charities would benefit Chubb, the producers and the community. The thankful letters from numerous charities that benefited from unexpected donations coupled with the producers' enthusiastic support of what Chubb was trying to do was proof that the idea was sound.

In 1999, Chubb's Northern Zone decided to expand on the original Challenge concept. Ten branches held local qualifying events that had foursomes from at least five producers as participants. The winning foursome from each branch was then invited to attend the Zone's "Tournament of Champions" at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. Those ten teams played for a total purse of $50,000.

The 2000 to 2017 Challenges exceeded everyone's expectations. As we continue the tradition in our 19th Challenge in 2018, we are hopeful that we will continue the momentum. Good luck and let the games go on!

The Competition

More than 5,200 teams of agents, brokers and clients have played in the Chubb Charity Challenge since 2000. 740 teams have advanced to the national tournament.

How The Challenge Works

Our broker and agent friends and clients join with our local staff around North America to enjoy a day on the course dedicated to fun and philanthropy. At least five foursomes must play in each local event, each choosing their own charity to play for. The winner earns the trip to the finals to play for $50,000.

Giving Thanks To All Participants

The hundreds of brokers, agents and clients who played in last year's tournament made the event possible — we look forward to the next 18 years of tradition.

Making Their Community Support Count

We interviewed some of our finalists to learn why they and their firms devote time and treasure to supporting their local communities, through the Chubb Charity Challenge and throughout the year.
