The Federated Challenge was formed in 2004 and has raised almost $30 million to support the youth mentoring and educational programs of the Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in Minnesota.

This event not only benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters, it also helps endow the Federated Challenge Scholarship Program, which provides financial support to “Littles” pursuing degrees at two-year trade and technical colleges.

Federated’s employees also support this important cause. The Federated Insurance Employees Club organizes an annual 5K run to support the Challenge, and the Federated Employees Credit Union donates a token amount for every loan taken out during the year. Many employees themselves are Bigs, and close to 100 employees plan and participate in the Federated Challenge each year, all to help give back to the Kids of Minnesota.

Over the last 10 years, Federated employees across the country have donated $2,784,402 to their local United Way organizations.

In September 2014, Federated received the Cornerstone Award which was “awarded in appreciation of the generous and sustained leadership giving by Federated Insurance and its employees.”
