Foresters mission and values in action.

Foresters invests millions of dollars in community partnerships that enrich the lives of members, their families and the communities where they live.

Since 2006, Foresters has invested over $10 million with KaBOOM! the national nonprofit dedicated to building community-focused playgrounds. By the end of 2015, Foresters Financial and KaBOOM! will have built over 120 new playgrounds across the U.S. and Canada. Over a 15 year lifespan, these playgrounds will provide more than 4 million children and their families an opportunity to spend quality time together.

Foresters, like Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) believes that families are stronger and healthier when they are together. That's why for over the past decade, Foresters members have supported 25,000 RMHC families by organizing over 575 activities at local Ronald McDonald Houses® across North America. Beyond financial contributions, these activities provide families with a sense of fun and comfort during an extremely stressful time.

In 2015, Foresters Financial and the American Red Cross joined together to launch a new and exciting emergency preparedness care package activity, Foresters Prepared with Care, where members learn how to become prepared for an emergency or disaster through Red Cross training, assemble emergency preparedness kits and then help spread the word about preparedness in their local communities. This partnership helps Foresters support members, their families and communities in planning ahead for the unexpended, while making a difference along the way.
