The Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation
Dreams Are Worth Pursuing
The American dream is kept alive by those who pursue it. That’s why the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation is working to show young people that their dreams are not only attainable but worth the effort. The foundation supports charities, educational initiatives and organizations aimed at building strong families and healthy kids, empowering them to chase and achieve their dreams.
The Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation will open the grant request portal one time per year (Fall) after the American Family Insurance Championship proceeds have been determined. The Foundation’s board of directors will review each grant request — under the mission of searching for organizations producing tangible outcomes that impact healthy children and families — with grant selections and funding allocations determined by the end of each calendar year. Please follow our social media and web site channels for additional grant information and timing.
