Our communities

At Markel, we support the local communities where we live and operate.

The Markel Style guides us and reminds us to honor our commitment to our communities, which we accomplish through corporate donations complemented by employee-led giving.

Making a difference locally starts with authentic engagement and continues with definitive action, whether through providing financial support or volunteering time. Together with our employees within our insurance-based business, we have a strong tradition of supporting local, national, and international organizations whose missions align with the Markel Style. Below you'll find examples of how we take commitment to our communities seriously.

The Markel Style in action

  • The Markel Specialty Scholarship

    Markel is focused on promoting career development by improving access to education—regardless of a person’s financial situation or background—and ensuring underrepresented groups have a path to success.

  • Our approach to corporate giving

    Honoring its commitment to community, Markel achieved another historic year of corporate giving in 2021 across its insurance group.

  • Matching Gifts program

    Complementing Markel’s corporate and local office giving, the Matching Gifts program adds a company match to an employee’s donations to qualifying non-profit organizations.
