Orlando, FL – The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) will donate $25,000 to support Kids’ Chance of America, in conjunction with its Annual Issues Symposium (AIS) 2022 golf tournament in Orlando, FL.
Kids’ Chance of America and its state affiliates provide college scholarships for young people affected by a parent’s workplace injury or death. Guy Carpenter, a leading global risk and reinsurance specialist and a business of Marsh McLennan (NYSE: MMC), sponsored the tournament.
“NCCI’s annual golf tournament is a great way to connect people in the workers compensation system and to support Kids’ Chance,” said Bill Donnell, president and CEO of NCCI. “Serious workplace injuries and deaths create huge challenges for families. Kids’ Chance scholarships provide these families with relief from some of the financial burdens they face.”
“Guy Carpenter is honored to support Kids’ Chance and help make this event happen,” said John Trace, CEO of North America at Guy Carpenter. “Kids’ Chance is a worthwhile organization started by people in the workers compensation industry, and it’s great to be a part of it.”
“It is amazing to see what an impact these scholarship contributions have for these students,” said Vicki Burkhart, Executive Director of Kids’ Chance of America. “Many of our scholarship students would not have the opportunity to pursue higher education without our support and the funding provided by great companies like NCCI and Guy Carpenter.”
Kids’ Chance has awarded over 8,700 college scholarships across the country valued at more than $30 million dollars. Kids’ Chance recently recognized Bill Donnell and NCCI for their long-time partnership with the scholarship program.
