SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – Orangewood Foundation received a $5,000 Partners in Giving donation from Nationwide Private Client in honor of Roger Stone Insurance Agency. The money will help prepare foster children and youth, along with other young people in the community, prepare for independent adulthood.
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 Jim Pedersen, 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.”
“I take great pleasure in honoring Orangewood Foundation with the Partners in Giving donation. We selected Orangewood Foundation due to the fact that most of the donations go directly to the recipients of the charity,” said Roger Stone, owner, Roger Stone Insurance Agency. “I also have personal experience being a foster parent, as my wife and I have fostered two children ourselves, and we understand the need for continuing support after the child becomes 18 years old.”
“We are honored to have been chosen by Roger Stone Insurance and Nationwide Private Client for a Partners in Giving donation,” said Chris Simonsen, CEO, Orangewood Foundation and Samueli Academy. “Your generous support will allow our foster and community youth to access valuable programs so they can continue to reach their greatest potential. Thank you so much!”
To date, Private Client has contributed $735,000 to organizations in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Texas and Washington through the Partners in Giving program. Private Client has committed an additional $296,000 for further charitable donations.
