The Council Foundation aims to provide Council member firms with the tools, resources and knowledge they need to have a greater impact on the commercial insurance brokerage sector. We aim to accomplish this through the Foundation’s double focus:

  • Attracting and Developing Talent

The success of our industry is based on our people and our expertise. Studies show that internships are the insurance brokerage industry’s most successful tool in the recruitment of college students. In light of that, the mission of the Foundation’s scholarship program is to bring fresh, diverse talent into the brokerage sector by way of internships. Participating member firms can nominate their best undergraduate interns to receive a $5,000 Foundation scholarship.

Since 2006, the Foundation has awarded $2.85 million to 569 students across the country pursuing careers in insurance. Learn more about the scholarship program.

  • Forward-Thinking Research

The Council Foundation is the only non-profit research body dedicated to studying issues directly impacting the commercial insurance brokerage industry. The mission of the Foundation’s research arm is to produce actionable, forward-thinking business intelligence on emerging topics and/or to deepen understanding of current topics to aid the broker community in strategic decision-making. Over the years, the Foundation has funded a variety of publications that have explored different opportunities and challenges impacting the brokerage business and its operations.
