Chubb supports communities around the world through our established philanthropic entities and via company-sponsored volunteer initiatives.
The company’s foundations made grants and matching gifts of nearly $7.0 million in 2016 to support innovative initiatives around the globe.
Chubb is a firm believer that positive contributions to the fabric of our communities return long-lasting benefits to society, our employees and our company. The Chubb Charitable Foundations primarily focus philanthropic support in the areas of education, poverty and health, and the environment.
