As the pandemic brought unforeseen challenges and hardship to Colorado, Pinnacol stepped up to support our community, donating nearly $2.5 million to COVID-19 funds.
We also helped many navigate a new way forward by providing safety resources and free safety consultations to all Colorado businesses.
We awarded $465,150 in grants to programs dedicated to protecting the health and safety of Colorado employees, helping injured workers get back to work, and promoting a robust business climate and a skilled workforce statewide.
In 2020, the Pinnacol Foundation awarded $452,820 in scholarships to 95 students.
With a mission to ensure that the children of Colorado workers fatally or seriously injured on the job have the opportunity to pursue their educational goals, the Foundation has awarded $6 million in scholarships to nearly 650 students since 2000.
In 2020, Pinnacol employees collectively donated $157,415 to local nonprofits through our annual employee giving campaign. Pinnacol matched those contributions, resulting in $306,250 for the Colorado community.
Pinnacol team members gave of their time in 2020, collectively volunteering over 500 hours.
When the pandemic hit, our employees pivoted and found creative ways to contribute remotely, including donating meals to essential workers.
The events of 2020 caused Pinnacol to examine its role in fostering opportunity, both within and outside our organization.
We are partnering with Prosper Colorado, Inclusive Economy and Colorado Companies Uniting Against Racism to implement policies and practices that break down barriers and fight systemic racism.
Pinnacol has long been committed to “greening” our environmental footprint. We’re a Certified Green Business with a LEED Gold-certified building, recognized as one of the highest-rated EnergyStar buildings in the city, and our employee-led Green Team leads our efforts to reduce waste and energy use.
In 2020, Pinnacol’s donation to Restoring Colorado’s Forest Fund helped to plant over 3,000 new trees on lands most severely impacted by wildfires.
