Community Values

West Elgin Mutual is based in your community and both the Company and our agents, employees and directors play an important role in building community.  You will recognize names and faces serving on service clubs, active in their church organizations, coaching hockey, baseball and soccer for youth, 4-H leaders and many agricultural organizations.   

West Elgin Mutual helps to fund community projects in the areas we serve, that provide long term benefits to a broad cross section of the population.  Working closely with municipalities and service clubs ensures the impact is broadly based

Each year we support local fall fairs across our trade area.  These are important community events that rely on a host of volunteers to make a special one, two or three day event in our back yards.  The Company also works closely with local volunteer fire departments for such things as special equipment purchases, smoke alarm installation programs and fire prevention education.
