As GEICO associates, we participate in annual fundraisers for Children’s National Medical Center as a labor of love. We’re committed to supporting the research, education, equipment and care that Children’s National provides, and we are honored to help bring good changes to children’s lives.
-- Tony Nicely, Chairman, President, and CEO, GEICO
Headquartered in Chevy Chase, Md., GEICO is one of the nation’s fastest growing auto insurance companies, and the company is also proud of the work they do outside of their office walls. GEICO's corporate mission encourages active, involved citizenship by their employees. GEICO associates read, build, mentor, walk, run, and coach -- whatever it takes to help organizations and people in need.
GEICO's headquarters office and regional office in Fredericksburg, Va., hold an employee fundraising campaign each year specifically for Children’s National. This employee-driven campaign has seen considerable growth over the past 28 years, starting at $10,000 and growing to more than $100,000 per year from the campaign and the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. In total, GEICO and its employees have donated more than $1 million to Children’s National.
"We have a 36-year history of supporting the hospital, which has proven to be a wonderful community asset," said Tony Nicely, GEICO's chairman, president, and CEO. "Some of our own associates’ families have been cared for at Children’s."
In addition to their generous financial donations, GEICO's employees volunteer with the Teens Against the Spread of AIDS (TASA) program at Children’s.
