Travelers Ensures Posse Scholar Success

Since 2007, The Posse Foundation has benefited from the generous support of The Travelers Companies, one of the nation’s largest insurance providers. Travelers has supported Posse with more than $435,000 in grants, in-kind donations, and event sponsorships to date.

“Travelers is committed to supporting education initiatives that make meaningful differences for individuals, their families and their communities,” says Jay Fishman, the chairman and CEO of Travelers. “The Posse Foundation has a proven track record of providing substantial opportunities to students who have a desire to succeed. We couldn’t be more pleased with the partnership and will continue to do our part to help their success grow.”

Travelers has welcomed more than 70 Posse Scholars as interns in their New York, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Hartford and D.C. offices. Over the years, many of these interns have been hired into full-time positions upon graduation.

“Jay Fishman and his team have been incredible Posse supporters, demonstrating unwavering belief in and enthusiasm for the Scholars and alumni,” says Posse President and Founder Deborah Bial. “Posse could not advance its mission to develop the next generation of leaders were it not for collaborations with respected industry giants like Travelers. We are deeply grateful for their partnership.”
