What Symmetry Financial Group Did to Raise $260,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Making a difference in their community

Symmetry Financial Group – a leading insurance marketing provider based in Swannanoa, North Carolina, is committed to being the change it wants to see in the world. In addition to helping people and their families get access to affordable insurance policies that meet their unique needs and will protect them for decades to come, the organization is just as committed to its charitable giving.

Symmetry proves this every day through their wellness program, Thrive, their Connect group for women, and National Days of Impact, where Symmetry staffers and agents work together to help make the world a better place.

Though charitable events of all kinds have been rescheduled or even canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the logistical challenges it has created, Symmetry Financial Group made a savvy pivot to ensure that they could continue to give, even in difficult times. Whitney Zeh, Senior Director of Well-Being and Philanthropy, praised the company and its agents for showing up in tough times, the transformative impact of their giving, and the fact that they were able to continue providing much-needed support to transformative, vital organizations.

Going virtual

This November, Symmetry Financial Group hosted A Night Under the Stars – a benefit event for Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina. Symmetry Financial Group hosted an auction, live music performances, and appearances by special guests. Major carrier partners, including American-Amicable and Mutual of Omaha, made major contributions to the event as well, helping Symmetry meet their giving goals and provide incredible opportunities to children in need.

Smashing records

A Night Under the Stars marked the fifth year of partnership between Make-A-Wish and Symmetry Financial Group. And even though it was Symmetry’s first virtual fundraiser, the community around the company wowed Make-A-Wish and audiences once again. The Symmetry team raised $260,000 in a single hour, showing their power to smash fundraising records and giving Make-A-Wish the ability to grant over 40 wishes for children in central and western North Carolina.

Looking to the future

Symmetry Financial Group has recently announced that they will be partnering with Asurea Insurance Services, creating a single group to be held by Quality Insurance Holdings. This partnership will grow both companies’ networks substantially, creating major opportunities for over 4,000 insurance agents across the United States.
