In the Community

Grinnell Mutual understands that making the world a better place begins at home. We believe in extending a compassionate hand to the people who live and work in the communities we call home. Grant programs like Road to Success and Fairground Facelift actively support and encourage our students, our neighbors, and our employees through the spirit of giving and volunteerism.

We’re rooted in humanity.

At Grinnell Mutual, we look beyond our walls and embrace not only our neighbors, but individuals and families we’ll never meet. The Grinnell Mutual Group Foundation (GMG) was established to help sustain organizations committed to education, natural resources, agriculture, community development, and civic involvement.

We support organizations that reflect who we are and embody the things we believe everyone is deserving of: Trust, integrity, encouragement, and compassion. Contact us for more information about the Grinnell Mutual Foundation or to inquire about foundation support of your organization.
