GEICO Cares In Action
GEICO understands our communities need us more than ever before. Our associates dedicate their time, talent, and treasures to making our local communities a better place for all of us through our GEICO Cares program. The program allows for our associates to participate in impactful campaigns and volunteer with local organizations with the help of our GEICO Cares Advocates to change the lives of people in their local community.
Philanthropy at GEICO
At GEICO, philanthropy is one of the best ways we give back to the communities where our associates live and work. In 2020 we raised and donated over 17 million dollars through partnership with United Way, National Urban League, Children's Hospital, and additional organizations brought forward by our associates. Learn more about our philanthropic efforts on our philanthropy page.
GEICO Fast Pitch Program
The GEICO Fast Pitch Program is designed to give our associates the ability to do even more to have a positive impact in their community. Each year the campaign allows for GEICO associates to pitch for funds for their favorite charity and opportunities to get their fellow associates more involved. After being voted on by their peers, the top winners then pitch their idea live in front of a committee that determines the donation GEICO will give to their organization. After receiving the donation the associate presents the amount to the charity along with a few activities to get more associates involved in their impact. The 2021 campaign helped to support over 100 charities. Our associates leading the way through community service is what makes GEICO Fast Pitch so important to us!
GEICO associates enter the competition by submitting their favorite charity.
Their peers vote on which submissions make it to the final round.
After the GEICO associate pitches their charity to a panel of judges, a winner is chosen.
Winners then present the donation to the winning charity, along with volunteer opportunities for more associate involvement.

I AM Ready
I AM Ready is one of GEICO's educational initiatives to support Title I Schools across the country. Each year our associates work together to donate supplies to children returning to school. In addition, GEICO partners with Shoes that Fit to provide new shoes to children going back to school across the country. Education is one of our focus areas and we're so proud of our associates efforts to making sure children can say "I AM Ready" for the first day of school.
