Outside of our day-to-day business, at Rogers Insurance we proudly serve the community through a variety of charitable events. Two of the primary events we support are:
The Run for L’Arche – one of the insurance industry’s largest charity runs
The Sinclair – our annual insurance industry charity golf tournament
Since 2010, Rogers Insurance has worked with the hardworking staff and volunteers at L’Arche Calgary and Economical to put on a fantastic running event that raises money and awareness for programs supporting people with developmental disabilities. We’ve raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, with the run getting bigger and better every year!
In 1994, a small group of Calgary insurance adjusters, executives and brokers launched The Jim Sinclair Charity Golf Tournament. Now celebrating our 20th anniversary, The Sinclair remains 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.
Thanks to amazing support from the insurance industry, The Sinclair has raised over $600,000 for the WICC – Women In Insurance Cancer Crusade, Bow Valley College Insurance Program Scholarship Fund, Memory PLUS – Alberta Health Services and the Alzheimer Society – Dementia Care.
Jim continues to act as the “patron saint“of The Sinclair and this event exemplifies his words: “The industry has been very good to many people and those of us who can, simply have a responsibility to give back to our community.”
The Canadian Legacy Project – Rogers Charity of Choice 2016-2018
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. 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.
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 Canadian Legacy 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 fund raising events.
Other Key Programs include: Field of Crosses, Forces@WORK, Vet Fit and Education,
