Building Bridges

“We contribute our resources to the communities in which we live and work”.

Brown & Brown has a long history of giving back to the community. As insurance brokers and consultants, the heritage and traditions of our company provide us with a foundation of ethics and responsibility, not only to provide our client partners with high quality service, but also to serve our local communities. Although we are a nation-wide company, our parent company’s decentralized culture allows our Tacoma office to continue the community involvement work that is a big part of who we are as individuals. Developed by our staff, one of our six culture commitments are “We contribute our resources to the communities in which we live and work”.

We are highly encouraged and supported by our branch management to serve on community boards, volunteer our time and participate in community activities. We are provided a matching funds and matching time program, and are able to do good things for our community through our Building Bridges Committee whose objective is:

“To nurture and continue development and promotion of Brown & Brown – Tacoma’s client centered culture through three focus areas: Community Involvement (B-Involved!), Employees & Families (B-Fit!), and Employee Recognition (B-Our Best!)”.



“To provide Brown & Brown employees the opportunity to serve our communities through activities and financial help”.

B-Our Best!


“To encourage, recognize and celebrate “A Player” behavior/performance, encourage teamwork and camaraderie among staff”.



“To focus on health, fitness and overall wellness issues by promoting positive choices and activities to employees and their families in an effort to increase productivity and performance, reduce stress, enhance the quality of life and through these goals to help stabilize the cost of insurance plans”.
