Jewelers Mutual Group Donates $500,000 to 3 Organizations In Band Together Charitable Campaign

(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — Jewelers Mutual Group announced the culmination of its charitable campaign, Band Together, for 2020, resulting in $500,000 in total donations to three deserving organizations — Feeding America, Kids In Need Foundation, and Stand Up To Cancer. The amounts donated were based on votes by the company’s personal jewelry policyholders.

“In a year of unprecedented challenges, banding together to help make a difference has been more important than ever before,” said Scott Murphy, Jewelers Mutual president and CEO. “The three organizations chosen are diverse in the causes they support, but all have one thing in common, and that is helping people when they need it most. It was remarkable to see our employees and policyholders come together throughout the past year to support the people and causes they are passionate about.”

Votes were made by Jewelers Mutual policyholders during the voting period.
Based on policyholder votes, Feeding America received $194,000, Kids In Need Foundation $150,000 and Stand Up To Cancer $156,000.

Policyholders’ votes and corresponding Jewelers Mutual donations impacted the three organizations in the following ways:

  • Feeding America
    • The donation of $194,000 helps provide at least 1,940,000 meals.*
  • Stand Up To Cancer
    • The donation of $156,000 supported Stand Up ToCancer’s innovative cancer research programs.
  • Kids In Need Foundation
    • The donation of $150,000 supplied 2,000 students with backpacks, each filled with essential school supplies to begin the new school year.

Jewelers Mutual looks forward to continuing to give back in 2021 and support people in need throughout our community and nationwide. For more information on Jewelers Mutual’s giving efforts, visit here and view this infographic highlighting the past year’s initiatives.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
