Rogers Community Impact.

Outside of our day-to-day business, at Rogers Insurance we proudly serve the community through a variety of charitable events. We’ve contributed over 5000 volunteer hours and helped raise significant amounts of money for a variety of charities.

Rogers Insurance Run for L’Arche

Rogers Insurance helped found the Rogers Run for L’Arche in 2011 and have continued to coordinate and lead the race. We’ve raised hundreds of thousands for L’Arche’s programs to support people with developmental disabilities. Every year our staff volunteers and helps raise money for this event.

Our Impact

L’Arche has grown to include 153 communities and 21 community projects in 38 countries on five continents around the world. L’Arche Calgary supports five homes, a Supported Independent Living Program, and a Tamarack Day Program. L’Arche creates community for over 100 people, including 33 core members with developmental disabilities.

In conjunction with Economical Insurance, Rogers Insurance helped establish the Rogers Insurance Run for L’Arche in 2011 and has continued to coordinate and lead the race. Each year, our staff both run and volunteer to help raise money for this event. The Rogers Insurance Run for L’Arche is one of the most popular early spring events on the Calgary running calendar.

Leaders in Insurance Charity Classic Golf Tournament

In 1994, a small group of Calgary insurance adjusters, executives and brokers launched The Jim Sinclair Charity Golf Tournament. The Sinclair was Alberta‛s only insurance industry fundraising event of its kind. The tournament was named in recognition of retired Guardian Insurance Senior Vice President, Jim Sinclair, who made significant contributions to the insurance industry across Canada during his distinguished 40 year career.

Making a difference

Since 2006, Rogers has lead and helped coordinate this event in partnership with other industry members. Together, we’ve raised over $900,000 for WICC Alberta, Bow Valley College Insurance Program (Scholarship Fund), Memory Plus (Alberta Health Services) and the Alberta Alzheimer’s Society (Dementia Care).

The Canadian Legacy Project – Rogers Charity of Choice 2019-2021

Every three years, Rogers Insurance employees are presented with several charitable organizations and then vote on who they want to support for a three-year period. We typically raise over $100,000 for that charity during that term.

After 13 presentations from organizations sponsored by our employees here at the Calgary Head Office, The Canadian Legacy Project was chosen for our next 3-year commitment.

Supporting Our Veterans

The Canadian Legacy Project was created because many of our Canadian Veterans are living in poverty and do not have the basic necessities in food, clothing and shelter. The Project is designed to support veterans and develop programs and events to help improve their everyday lives. The Calgary Veteran’s Food Bank is the only one in Canada – monthly support includes a food and toiletries drive, employee charitable donations matched by Rogers Insurance Ltd., volunteering and innovative fundraising events.

Other Key Programs include: Field of Crosses, Forces@WORK, Vet Fit and Education.
