NYCM Gives: Celebrating National Nonprofit Day

At NYCM Insurance, embracing community and succeeding as a team are core values that we hold at the forefront each and every day. We know that when we are working together everyone achieves more, and that by supporting the people and organizations where we live, work, and play, we can strengthen the foundation of the communities we call home.


Not only do we take extreme pride in offering exceptional care and service to our customers, but we are humbled to offer support to more than 550 events, organizations, and causes each year—many of which are submitted by employees who are looking to bolster the charitable groups that resonate with them. NYCM supports a variety of organizations related to health and wellness, education, youth athletics, fine arts, community events, and other causes that align with company values and contribute to making our communities special.

In March 2022, the NYCM Foundation presented a donation of $10,000.00 to the Edmeston Rotary Club in support of Ukrainian refugees seeking safety.

In addition to hundreds of charitable causes, NYCM corporately sponsors various organizations that coordinate run/walks on an annual basis including:


       Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Alzheimer’s Association

       Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – American Cancer Association

       Tour de Cure – American Diabetes Association

       America’s Greatest Heart Run & Walk – American Heart Association

       Walk for Autism – The Kelberman Center

       Walk for MS – National Multiple Sclerosis Society

       No-Shave November

       Brave the Shave – St. Baldrick’s Foundation


Each of these corporate sponsorships brings employees and community members together around a common cause to represent Team NYCM and raise awareness and funds for people in need. Every year, NYCM employees team-up and display genuine care for a number of causes that resonate with them, and work to provide hope for a better tomorrow and the courage to persevere.

Year-round, team members are welcome to submit employee-driven fundraisers on the company intranet page to help spread the word about different philanthropic efforts taking place and to help one another get involved. Over the years, NYCM employees have organized longstanding and recurring projects that benefit our communities in important ways.


Some examples include: employees organizing Back-to-School supply drives, donations to local food pantries, contributions of clothing and personal products to local school districts, and offerings to nursing homes and families in need through programs like Helping Hands and the Sherburne Christmas Cares Committee.

In June 2022, NYCM Insurance Customer Experience team members Hannah Backus, Kelsea Webster, Joyce Polanowicz, Sarah Newman, Todd Penoyer, Zeke Miller, Doug Stoddard, and Roger Kise spent the day volunteering to help clean up at the Utica Zoo.

NYCM employees are also empowered to utilize 16-hours of annual paid volunteering time, together totaling nearly 1,000 hours of volunteer time every year. Through our employee volunteer opportunities, team members are able to get involved and spread awareness about the causes that mean the most to them.


At NYCM Insurance, we feel incredibly proud to be able to partner with such upstanding organizations and are inspired every day by the actions of our team members who continually demonstrate genuine compassion and empathy for others.
