Community involvement

Markel cares about the communities where our employees and customers live and work. Markel has a tradition of supporting a diverse group of not-for-profit organizations whose missions align with the Markel Style. Our employees step up to volunteer in their local communities. Many of our offices have a committee to recommend which charities to support each year.

Matching gift program
  • Markel will match associate donations up to a specified amount at a range of 3:1 to 1:1 in the US and Bermuda. In 2018, nearly 700 associates took advantage of our matching gift program, and Markel made matching gifts to over 500 different not-for-profit organizations in the US and Bermuda.
