National Crop Insurance Services and Rain and Hail Partner In Support of Progressive Agriculture Safety Days.
National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS), an international not-for-profit organization representing the interests of private crop insurance companies, recently selected the Progressive Agriculture Foundation (PAF) as its selected charity for the Crop Insurance Industry Annual Convention.
“Each February, NCIS selects an ag-related charitable organization to feature during the Crop Insurance Industry Annual Convention. Attendees are provided information on the charity and encouraged to provide donations to the organization. We have supported several ag-related charities during past conventions and were pleased to feature Progressive Agriculture Safety Days during the 2018 Convention,” says Tom Zacharias, president of National Crop Insurance Services. “Progressive Agriculture Safety Days are critical in teaching farm safety to children, whether they reside on a farm or visit one occasionally. Preventing tragedies through educating parents and children is something that
we can easily support, and we look forward to working with the organization again in the future.” NCIS donated $2,450 in an effort to send more children to Progressive Agriculture Safety Days.
With a matching donation from Rain and Hail, of Johnston, Iowa, in the amount of $2,450, the crop insurance industry raised $4,900 for Progressive Agriculture Safety Days during the 2018 convention. Rain and Hail, a 1-star sponsor of Progressive Agriculture Safety Days, is one of 15 private insurance companies providing crop insurance to America’s farmers and ranchers, is a member of NCIS and annually sponsors a matching donation to the designated convention charity.
“Rain and Hail values the important work and mission of the Progressive Agriculture Foundation,” says Dave Schuler, national marketing manager at Rain and Hail LLC. “We were happy to recommend, help raise awareness and sponsor Progressive Agriculture Safety Days through the NCIS fundraiser.”
