As we all navigate the unique situation that coronavirus is posing for our communities, we stand strong in our commitment to those who count on us. See what we’re doing to support our business partners and communities in the fight against COVID-19.
We’re supporting the 70,000 Texas employers who rely on us for workers’ compensation coverage during this difficult time. You can find COVID-19 prevention materials, information on claims related to the virus, and other resources for business owners on our policyholder and employer resource page.
During a time when our communities need us most, Texas Mutual is stepping in. We have committed $2 million in grant funding for nonprofit organizations across the state that are vital to COVID-19 relief and recovery. The grants will go to 40 nonprofit organizations, including Meals on Wheels, United Way, local food banks, community health organizations and more that are on the front lines of the COVID-19 efforts.
We have also donated $50,000 to All Together ATX, a partnership of Austin Community Foundation and United Way for Greater Austin, focused on lifting all Central Texans and the organizations that support them.
Additionally, a number of nonprofit organizations that received workforce development grants from Texas Mutual earlier this year have been released to use those grants not just on specific programs but for meeting the needs they have now, whether that is payroll for staff or supplies to serve those in need.
We have also assisted Ronald McDonald House of Central Texas by catering meals from locally owned restaurants since volunteers aren’t able to prepare meals for residents during this time.
The vast majority of our employees have been working remotely for weeks, and we’re doing our part to ensure they stay safe and healthy on the job. Explore our latest article on Work-from-home best practices and safety tips.
