In Their Own Words
“The Butterfly Fund impacts our families from diagnosis to, sadly, end of life and everywhere in between. It alleviates a little bit of stress for the families, providing gas for weekly appointments or rent in those months when a parent isn’t able to work.
The hardest request we receive is one of help with funeral or burial expenses. Earlier this year, a young lady of 17 years lost her year-long battle with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma. This amazing child had a spirit of gratitude always, a beautiful smile, and a love of life. The Butterfly Fund assisted in paying for her funeral expenses, allowing the family to honor her beautiful life in the way they wanted.”

IICF Midwest Wins "Rookie of the Year" Volunteer Award at Cradles to Crayons Backpack-a-thon in ChicagoThanks to the fantastic commitment of the IICF Midwest Board of Directors, thousands of children in the Greater Chicago area will be more prepared for school success this year. The IICF team of insurance industry volunteers participated in the 3rd Annual Cradles to Crayons Backpack-a-thon last week, spending their day packing and delivering school backpacks for 25,000 children in underserved Chicago communities. Through IICF's $15,000 grant, backpacks and supplies for 2,890 children were purchased – more than 100 classrooms worth!
IICF volunteers were recognized for their efforts with the 2018 Golden Pencil Award for Rookie of the Year! Volunteers included representatives from AmTrust E&S Specialty Insurance, Butler Rubin Saltarelli & Boyd, Chubb, CNA, FM Global, Hylant, the Katie School of Insurance, Lloyd’s, RT Specialty, Starr Companies, Traub Lieberman Straus & Shrewsberry and Zurich. "The enthusiasm and incredible participation level of our supporters this year is simply tremendous," said Kelly Hartweg, IICF Midwest Executive Director. Hartweg congratulated the board on their award and noted that she had so many volunteers this year that a waiting list for volunteer spots was necessary. Thank you, IICF Midwest, for raising the bar in showing how insurance gives back in a meaningful way, truly enriching lives in the communities where we live and work!
