Community Involvement

Heritage Insurance is more than an insurance company, we are active members of the Florida community. Heritage’s slogan — Pillars of Strength and Character — highlights our ethics and core beliefs. Chief among these beliefs is our commitment to support our local communities. 

Since its beginning in 2013, Heritage has donated over $7.2 million in charitable contributions.  Here are some of the highlights.

Lightning Street Made

Heritage is honored to sponsor the Oldsmar Lightning Made Street Hockey Rink, the first of its kind in Pinellas County. The rink is the second of 10 being built in the Tampa Bay community as part of the Lightning’s Build the Thunder 2.0 and Connect the Thunder initiatives. The grand opening was held on October 12, 2019, and following the ceremony, the Lightning Community Hockey department and alumni held clinics for all ages. Heritage’s commitment to this rink creates more healthy opportunities for the young people of Tampa Bay and presents a unique opportunity to give back to the local community through our partnership with the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Heritage Insurance teamed up with Mendez & Associates Insurance, the Broward Latin American Association- Insurance Agency, and Life4NetFamilies for a clothing drive to support the families of Broward County’s citizens who are in need. All clothing donated went directly to Life4NetFamilies to distribute among the county’s homeless and impoverished people. Life4NetFamilies is located in the heart of Broward County, FL and serves individuals and families in crisis. Through their partnerships with companies like Heritage, Life4NetFamilies is able to secure enough food, clothing, and help to support all of the people who are in need and looking for help.

The Salvation Army - Clearwater and Upper Pinellas County

Teaming up with the Salvation Army for the fourth consecutive year, Heritage Insurance helped to bring some much needed cheer to the Tampa Bay area again this past holiday season through their participation in the Angel Tree program. Every year that Heritage Insurance has participated, the enthusiasm has grown. In 2017, Heritage sponsored 450 angels, an increase of 200 angels over 2016.  That’s more angels than employees in the Clearwater headquarters!
