Dec 17, 2018

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Mile High United Way recently received a $5,000 Partners in Giving donation from Nationwide Private Client in honor of IMA Select. This donation will help Mile High United Way support its direct service programs, including Mile High United Way’s Bridging the Gap program and 2-1-1 Help Center, as well as advocacy in public policy to support mission-related legislation. 

Private Client is Nationwide's personal lines carrier focused on the affluent market. Its appointed independent agents are offered an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others with charitable donations in their local communities through the Partners in Giving program.

“Partners in Giving provides our agency partners with opportunities for us to make charitable donations on their behalf — helping them give back to the communities where they live and work,” stated Paul VanDenBosch, president, Nationwide Private Client. “This form of giving is foundational to our culture and integral to our success. It is a constant reminder that, in our efforts to serve our clients, we are also generating meaningful support for local communities.”

“IMA has had a strong relationship with the United Way, not only in Denver, but nationally for nearly 30 years,” said Whitney Hager, Colorado market leader for IMA Select. “We are excited to continue our partnership in giving back to the communities where our associates and clients live, work, learn and play.”

“We are so grateful to have been chosen by IMA Select and Nationwide Private Client for this generous donation,” said Kayla Garcia, senior director of corporate services for Mile High United Way. “This support is critical in our fight to address poverty in Metro Denver. Together we are building a vibrant, thriving community for all.”

To date, Nationwide Private Client has contributed more than $1.2M to organizations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee and Washington through the Partners in Giving program. Nationwide Private Client has committed an additional $117,000 for further charitable donations.
