$40,000 Assurant Foundation donation provides critical aid to F&I workers, families impacted by COVID-19 pandemic

NEW YORK, May 27, 2020 – Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a global provider of lifestyle and housing solutions that support, protect and connect major consumer purchases like automobiles, announced it has given $40,000 to the new F&I Providers Relief Fund through its Assurant Foundation. The newly launched charity has announced a $1 million fundraising goal to help professionals in the F&I industry facing difficult times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Assurant has been a leader in the auto industry for over 50 years,” said senior vice president at Assurant, Dan Lenczner. “Key to leading is taking care of people – your employees, the industry and the community. The F&I Providers Relief Fund is dedicated to helping this employee base that is vital to the automotive industry.”

Lenczner, along with six other industry leaders, sits on the board of directors that is leading the charity’s fundraising goals and reviewing applications. To avoid potential conflicts, anonymous applications will be vetted by objective staff members before they are submitted for board review. The board will award grants up to $2,000 each and hopes that as more providers and other leading companies throughout the F&I industry join in the fundraising efforts, the Relief Fund will be able to help as many F&I managers, and their families, as possible.
