The PIA Western Alliance has formed the PIA Western Alliance Community Foundation, a partnership formed by the member agents and independent insurers to invest in local communities.
Insurers and agents representing the nine Western Alliance states — Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington — will contribute to the foundation to support Main Street and local projects.
According to PIA, this is not a high-end donor program, nor is it designed for large charities where a donation can get lost in the shuffle. The finances available through the foundation are aimed at providing civic, sports, shelters, community beautification and other programs a helping hand from PIA members with grassroots ties to a particular community. At times, a PIA member may create the cause — the donation will be a part of the efforts of others.
