Supporters Can Help Double the Donation to $10,000 by Voting for their Agent Giving Story 

Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance have awarded Fort Collins Insurance a 2024 Make More Happen Award for its volunteerism with Realities For Children, a nonprofit organization that provides for the emergency and ongoing support needs of children in Northern Colorado who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, or are at-risk. The award includes an initial donation of $5,000 for Realities For Children, which can be doubled to $10,000 just by having community supporters vote online.

The Fort Collins Insurance and Realities For Children community story is highlighted on the official Make More Happen microsite at where supporters can vote to help the team reach their donation goal. If the featured story receives a mix of at least 500 votes and comments, the $5,000 donation will be raised to $10,000. 

The $10,000 donation will help fund the future Realities For Children Healing Sanctuary which will provide a world-class model of healing support for trauma and sexual assault survivors. The vision of the Realities For Children Healing Sanctuary is to provide a multifunctional resource that connects trauma survivors with the healing power of nature and offers numerous programs in the safe and welcoming setting needed to fortify the Healing Process.

“We are honored and incredibly grateful for being awarded the 2024 Make More Happen Award so we can continue to help our community and give back even more to Realities For Children,” said Jackie Jackson, Managing Director for Fort Collins Insurance. “Realities For Children has had a significant impact in the Fort Collins area and we are thrilled to double the donation with community support.”

Fort Collins Insurance has supported Realities For Children with several programs throughout the year. The agency has assisted with donation drives to fill backpacks and collect coats, toys, and gift cards for the holidays.

“Recognizing independent agents’ dedication to their communities and nonprofit partners is what the Make More Happen Awards is all about,” said Eric Tompkins, Safeco Insurance Mountain Region Senior Territory Manager. “Fort Collins Insurance is a shining example of the amazing work agents do in the Fort Collins area and we hope that sharing inspiring stories motivates others to do the same.”

Throughout 2024, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select up to 37 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $370,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application and photos demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit.
