DENVER — Nov. 16, 2022 — Leading Colorado-based workers’ compensation insurer Pinnacol Assurance has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 Colorado by CSR Solutions of Colorado and Points of Light for its robust corporate citizenship programming. Pinnacol’s grantmaking, corporate volunteerism, scholarships program, compassionate support for injured workers, sustainability efforts, and championing of diversity, equity and inclusion are all ways it cares for Colorado. This is the fourth consecutive year Pinnacol has received this recognition. 

The award is determined by an independently administered and scored survey. The Civic 50 Colorado award provides a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.

“We are honored our civic engagement is being recognized as it reflects our culture of caring for the health and safety of our communities, a healthy business climate and Colorado’s workforce,” said Wes Parham, vice president of public affairs for Pinnacol. “We’ve been a community leader in Colorado for more than 105 years and we’re committed to continued investment in our state as a core part of our mission.” 

In 2021: 

  • The Pinnacol Foundation awarded $347,150 in scholarships to 75 children of workers who were killed or seriously injured on the job, regardless of the insurer. The foundation has awarded more than $7 million in scholarships to nearly 700 students since its inception in 2010. 
  • Pinnacol awarded more than $507,000 in grants to programs focused on protecting the health and safety of Colorado employees, helping injured workers get back to work, and promoting a robust business climate and skilled workforce statewide, prioritizing organizations that support advanced skill development programs designed to create opportunity for BIPOC communities as part of their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Through its Employee Giving Campaign, Pinnacol and its employees donated $272,528 to local nonprofits and charities. Employees also spent 1,150 hours volunteering in the communities where they live and work.
