2019 Community Report

WCF COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

LEGACY OF LEARNING
In 1990, WCF Insurance started the Legacy of Learning Scholarship Program to give educational assistance to spouses and children of workers who lost their lives in compensable industrial accidents while working for WCF policyholders. This year, we celebrated the program’s 30th year. Legacy of Learning helps people realize educational goals that, because of the loss of a breadwinner, they might not have otherwise achieved. With the presentation of this year’s 21 Legacy of Learning scholarships, WCF has awarded over 1,220 scholarships in excess of $2.25 million since 1990.

DR. PAUL S. RICHARDS WORKPLACE SAFETY SCHOLARSHIPS
In 2020, as part of the Dr. Paul S. Richards Safe Workplace Scholarship Program, WCF Insurance awarded scholarships to graduate students at the University of Utah’s Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health. The program began in 1997 to help facilitate education and training of students committed to a career of keeping workplaces safe and protecting workers. Scholarships are awarded to graduate students in the fields of occupational medicine, safety and ergonomics, and industrial hygiene.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE SAFETY GRANTS
WCF Insurance offers safety grants to qualifying policyholders to assist in funding workplace-safety initiatives for the prevention of injuries and promotion of workplace safety awareness. WCF matches funds up to $1,000. Safety grant applications are accepted each year from January through May. In 2020, we were able to help 42 policyholders with their safety needs, 21 of whom specifically requested COVID-19-related assistance. Policyholders can apply here.

UTAH VALLEY UNIVERSITY RISK MANAGEMENT DONATION
In October 2019, WCF and The Buckner Group partnered with UVU’s Woodbury School of Business to add a professional-in-residence faculty member and a dean’s executive-in-residence in the business school’s risk management and insurance area. The partnership will also provide 20 to 40 scholarships per year, fund a graduate assistant position, underwrite UVU’s risk management and insurance competition team, and fund other operational costs.

WCF EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
WCF Insurance’s volunteer policy allows each full-time employee to use four work hours each month to serve in the community. Once each month, for the past 16 years, WCF has staffed the kitchen at the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Hall in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we had to scale that back because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but employees were still able to get out into the community to help those in need at food banks, in charity walks, and in schools. 
 

85 WCF EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEERED MORE THAN 538 HOURS IN 2020 TO 40+ ORGANIZATIONS.

 

Each month, different departments within WCF Insurance volunteer during work hours to help serve meals to the homeless at the St. Vincent De Paul's Soup Kitchen. 

 

VIRTUAL 5K
WCF Insurance employees joined together virtually on a Friday in September 2020 to run, walk, or bike a 5K. We didn’t let COVID-19 dampen our resolve to get outside for a good cause. Each participant paid a $25 registration fee, which they got to designate to one of three charitable causes. Everyone then received a T-shirt, a race bib, and a medal to participate in the virtual event. Together, we raised $2,700 and had a great time.

NEUROWEEK
Neuroweek is an annual, week-long fundraising campaign organized and executed by WCF Insurance employees for pediatric care provided by Neuroworx, an outpatient physical therapy clinic focused on rehabilitation for individuals experiencing paralysis from various neurological conditions. The week features several fundraising opportunities for employees, members of the community, and sponsors, such as a golf tournament, a family movie night, chance drawings, and a field day. All proceeds raised through Neuroweek go directly to benefit Neuroworx’s mission.
