Charitable giving and volunteerism are the heart and soul of the Starr Group’s operations, illustrating the company’s Christian values.

Headed by president Paul Neuberger and executive vice president Mary Starr, the Greenfield insurance agency has raised over $1 million in 2019 alone for Wisconsin nonprofits, including the American Heart Association, of which Starr is chair of the Milwaukee board of directors.

To inspire a spirit of community giving in its employees, The Starr Group offers paid time off for volunteer activities during normal business hours. Each quarter, employees are asked to nominate a charity of their choice to benefit from fundraising efforts.

“This mighty team of just 40 passionate individuals has donated money and time to make a difference in the lives of many,” said Starr’s director of marketing Cheryl Michalek. “We are thrilled to give back to a community that has provided us with so much.”
