Spotlight on Renaissance Alliance Member: Encharter Insurance Responds to COVID19 Community Needs

staff - Encharter Insurance

Encharter Insurance has been an independent insurance agency member of Renaissance Alliance since 2004.  Located in Amherst, MA, the agency has been serving the local community since 1879 and exemplifying what it means to be a good business neighbor. Community service is an integral part of their overall mission, something they demonstrate in both good times and bad. As we face tough times today, they are demonstrating that value once again.  We are shining a spotlight on their generosity and involvement with their neighbors as they prove themselves to be a part of the community solution in the time of Covid19.

Encharter’s dedication to their community is instilled in their company culture. They’ve been assisting clients with problems and challenges posed by Covid19 in various ways, such as by monitoring carrier credits to reduce insurance premiums and offering support to their restaurant clients with direct purchase of gift cards. They’ve also been promoting small business clients through social media and email campaigns and donating gift cards to other needy community members. We’ve been impressed by their team’s commitment to making comfort and caring calls to let their customers know that they are there for them and will assist in any way possible.

For a larger outreach, Encharter Insurance provided $500 to support the Cooley Dickinson COVID-19 Response Fund.  This fund will help purchase needed equipment, such as N95 masks, gowns, gloves, and hand sanitizer, to protect local heroes who are fighting  on the front line of this pandemic in the Amherst community.

Tracey Benison, President of Encharter Insurance said that, “More than ever, we value our partnership with the Amherst Chamber and their continued support to the community during these trying times.” She noted that Encharter contributed $2,000 towards the  Microgrant Small Business Loan Support project. This project is designed to offer relief and resiliency to Amherst-wide businesses that might otherwise not survive the economic downturn as the public health crisis continues.  As the community rallies together to offer support similar to that offered by Encharter, this fund will allow local small businesses to build on their capacity without taking on additional debt.  Tracey also notes that Encharter CEO, Marc Buro, has also made a personal donation of $500 to this fund to show his support.

Encharter Insurance is living their tagline “Caring, convenience, and community” every single day. We’re proud to shine a spotlight on their good works in the time of Covid19 and proud to have them as longstanding members of Renaissance Alliance!
