Orlando, FL – The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) recently announced it has given $25,000 to Kids’ Chance of America, supporting college scholarships for the children of injured workers. NCCI made the donation in conjunction with its Annual Insights Symposium (AIS) 2023 golf tournament in Orlando, FL.
Kids’ Chance of America and its 50 state affiliates provide educational enablement to 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), is the tournament sponsor.
“This golf event is a highlight for NCCI because it makes a difference for young people whose families have been affected by workplace injury or death,” said Bill Donnell, president and CEO of NCCI. “The tournament connects people from across the insurance industry to help Kids’ Chance offer hope and financial relief to these deserving students.”
“Kids’ Chance does meaningful work, and Guy Carpenter is proud to support this event and the students who benefit,” said John Trace, CEO of North America at Guy Carpenter. “Kids’ Chance is a tremendous grass roots organization started by caring people in the workers compensation system.”
“When a worker is seriously or fatally injured, it can devastate their entire family,” said Jeannette Archer-Simons, executive director of Kids’ Chance of America. “Kids’ Chance, with the help of great companies like NCCI and Guy Carpenter, make it possible for these kids to have a chance at a better future.”
Kids’ Chance has awarded more than 9,300 college scholarships across the country valued at more than $33 million dollars. Kids’ Chance recognized Bill Donnell and NCCI for their long-time partnership in 2022.
