Social Impact

Corporate Social Responsibility at C&F

Community, fairness and dedication to those we serve is core to C&F — to our stakeholders, employees, policyholders, producers and, importantly, the local communities and the many charities that we support.  Our social impact programs demonstrate our passion for driving positive change among the diverse groups we serve — whether through corporate charitable giving, employee-driven philanthropic and charitable efforts, and active and engaged volunteerism in the communities where we live and work.

We also believe our colleagues, and the outstanding work they do to support C&F’s social impact efforts, are our greatest asset. Our mission to attract, retain and support diverse talent is representative of different life experiences and educational levels, genders, races, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, religions, and differing abilities and age groups. [email protected]&F celebrates our employees, and each and every day we strive to make this great place to work an even better one.

A Diverse, Inclusive Workplace

At C&F, we value diversity, inclusivity and belonging. We recognize that each of our team members have different identities and bring forward unique perspectives, experiences and talents. We believe that when we amplify all voices, we enhance our ability to work together as productive teams and ultimately our success as an organization.

We believe our outstanding colleagues are our greatest asset. It is our mission to attract, develop and retain diverse talent from the communities in which we work and which represent the policyholders who we serve. We invite you to discover the many ways in which we encourage and support our diverse workforce.

ERGs

ERG Donations & Volunteerism

In 2021 our ERGs chose several diversity-related organizations for corporate support totaling over $50,000 in employee-driven donations. Our employees have also actively volunteered with many of these organizations creating ongoing links between our employees and the communities we serve. Some examples include:

  • Donation to the All Stars Project for its Development School for Youth and participation in several of its workshops.
  • Donation to SHE Wins Inc., a non-profit group that helps girls affected by inner-city violence and participation in their Summer Leadership Academy, which facilitates college preparedness, self-empowerment, mentorship, cultural immersion, social justice, and community service.
