Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd., an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance, today announced its employees and the Argo Foundation have contributed more than $100,000 to support the COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
“The Argo Foundation recognizes the critical needs that have arisen during the COVID-19 crisis,” said William Wharton, head of Argo Insurance Bermuda and chair of the Argo Foundation.
“The Foundation board voted to donate $25,000 to the Emergency Fund managed by the Bermuda Community Foundation. We will, of course, continue to support other local charities, as the future still remains quite uncertain. As a company, we look forward to doing our part to ensure Bermuda’s future.”
“Argo Group has a culture of giving that extends to our employees,” added Ryan Mather, global head of reinsurance. “Many have generously donated personal funds to support the Emergency Fund. By utilizing the Argo Group charitable matching program, we have worked together to create a bigger impact than any of us could do alone.
“We care deeply about how this crisis is affecting the community and want to do what we can to support our community.”
