Robertson Ryan Insurance, Charitable Foundation



The Robertson Ryan Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and was launched in 2022. Our foundation provides qualified outlets for making a difference in the communities we serve. Through our Agent Owners and Associates we are committed to donating, volunteering and making a lasting impact.



Our core mission is simple: to strengthen our communities

We accomplish this through:

  • Donations for non-profits and those in need through financial contributions and fundraising initiatives;
  • Ongoing community volunteerism and our impactful annual companywide Community Service Day founded in 2017;
  • Relationships built and fostered by our Agent Owners & Associates who personally form meaningful and deep connections with non-profits


Our Funding Priorities:

  • Local, state and national non-profits, with focus on local organizations keeping funds in the communities we serve
  • Animal Welfare, Arts & Culture, Civic & Community Affairs, Environmental Issues and Human Services
  • Organizations with high ethical standards, inclusive environments, operationally sound and with demonstrated financial achievement
  • Causes important to our Agent Owners and Associate


What We Don’t Fund:

  • Direct donations to individuals
  • Building of capital campaigns
  • Sporting event sponsorships
  • Conferences or travel
  • Political campaigns and legislative lobbying efforts
  • Projects that exclusively serve religious purposes
  • Controversial causes
