Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company of Idaho is in the business of helping people who suffer a loss, but our culture of caring extends well beyond policyholders.

Each year, the Home Office’s Charitable Contributions Committee reviews charitable requests and makes recommendations for donations to various non-profit organizations and events.

The season of giving is a good time to take a look back at the charitable gifts the committee made during the year.

The following is a list of organizations and events supported by the Charitable Contributions Committee in 2019:

Southeast Idaho Community Action Agency (SEICCA)

ALS Association

Idaho Farm Bureau agents across the state also donate hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to charitable organizations in their communities.

There are probably countless examples of generosity and sharing by our agents and employees taking place all the time, all over Idaho. And it’s all because our people really do care.
