Fournier Insurance Solutions has earned a 2016 Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award for its community work with Couage360.

The award includes a $4,000 donation to Courage360 from Safeco Insurance, along with a feature story on Safeco.com and the chance to win an additional $1,000 when the feature appears.

Courage360 empowers women and men to create better lives for themselves and their families. We accomplish this by teaching them the skills to find – and keep – jobs that provide a genuine living wage. On the work front, Courage360 teaches job readiness, computer and workplace skills training. On the home front, we help with housing assistance and support services to low-income residents of Pierce and King counties. For more information on Courage360, visit www.courage360.org.

Fournier Insurance Solutions has been involved in volunteering and cultivating public awareness for Courage360 for more than years. Kendra Fournier’s service on the Board of Directors for Courage360 has created a number of opportunities for the non-profit. Efforts such as clothing and toiletry supply drives, donations made through Fournier’s Client Referral Program, support through its rebranding process, fundraising and selecting Courage360 as the community partner and beneficiary of the Big-I Pierce County annual golf tournament are just a few of the ways Fournier Insurance Solutions has impacted Courage360.

For Courage360 to win the additional $1,000, at least 50 different individuals must leave a “cheer” on the Safeco.com story featuring Fournier Insurance Solutions and Courage360 during the one-week period it is live. The story is at www.Safeco.com/make-more-happen and is best viewed on a desktop or laptop.

Fournier Insurance Solutions was selected for the Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Courage360, which serves King and Pierce County by assisting low-income individuals to gain the skills, knowledge, experience and courage to be self-supporting.

Throughout 2016, Safeco will select a total of 66 independent agencies for the awards and donate up to $330,000 to the nonprofits they support.
