Marsh & McLennan Agency is committed to serving the community. In California, we fulfill this commitment through the work of the Barney & Barney Foundation. Named in honor of our region’s founding agency, the foundation provides grants to community non-profits. Since 2009, the foundation has awarded over $3 million to more than 200 non-profits.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the stress this is putting on our communities, we have decided to cancel our fundraising events for 2020. This includes our Orange County/Los Angeles and Bay Area golf tournaments as well as our Rock the Foundation event in San Diego. In place of these events, we have developed a plan to provide immediate support for the local COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funds in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Tempe, Tucson and Alaska.
We will be making gifts from the Barney & Barney Foundation totaling $100,000 that will be allocated to these relief funds.
We know that these are uncertain times so if you or anyone you know would like to help, we urge you to consider the plight of those less fortunate in our communities who will truly benefit from our generosity and make a personal donation to support our efforts.Note that your gift to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will be directed to the fund in your area.
As we work together to help one another through these challenging times, we also encourage you to please make your personal health and the well-being of your loved ones your top priority.
Thank you for your continued support of our cause and for our adjusted course of action. We know that with your help, next year, we will all return stronger.
