About Us


Greater Chesapeake Charitable Foundation Insurance and Financial Professional giving back.


The Greater Chesapeake Charitable Foundation is the insurance and financial services industry’s charitable foundation. Through the members of our associations, by volunteering our time and/or donating our money to various non-profit organizations, we are dedicated to improving the physical and financial wellness of Marylanders in need.

Our History:

The roots of the Greater Chesapeake Charitable Foundation can be traced back to 1939, although the organization has only been known by this name since 2012.

Originally known as the Baltimore Life Underwriters Charitable Foundation, the focus was providing orphans with gifts for the holidays. With a vision of creating an endowment that would ensure that future generations could carry the torch of community service, the Board expanded their reach and participation. Rather than continuing to exist as the Charitable Foundation of the Baltimore Life Underwriters, other associations representing the insurance and financial services industry were invited to have a seat at the table.

Today, the Board represents Baltimore Health Underwriters, Maryland Chapters of the CPCU Society, the Society of Financial Services Professionals, and the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors and plans continued expansion in the future.
