AgQuest/MN River Ins Receives Spirit of the Silver Lining Award

As an independent insurance agency, AgQuest/Minnesota River Insurance is proud to represent some of the best insurance companies in the business. One of those companies is West Bend Mutual Insurance based out of West Bend, Wisconsin. West Bend not only has an outstanding reputation for providing a comprehensive portfolio of personal and business insurance products, but also has an outstanding reputation for serving local communities; a core value that
we – West Bend and AgQuest/MN River Insurance – share.

We Serve our Community
One of West Bend’s operating principles is “We serve our community.” They take a lot of pride in not only supporting their own hometown, but also the communities in which their associates and independent agents live and work.

To fulfill this principle, West Bend established two foundations through which grants are awarded each year to very deserving, nonprofit organizations. They are the West Bend Mutual Insurance Charitable Trust and the West Bend Independent Agents’ Fund.

Each year, West Bend presents the Spirit of the Silver Lining Award to several of their independent insurance agents and the nonprofit organizations they support. The award recognizes those agents and organizations for their dedication to delivering a silver lining to those in need. In addition, the nonprofit recipients of the award receive grants from the West Bend Independent Agents’ Fund.

Spirit of The Silver Lining Award
AgQuest/MN River Insurance is very excited to announce that we are one of the 2020 recipients of West Bend Mutual Insurance Co.’s Spirit of the Silver Lining Award. As the recipient, AgQuest/MN River Insurance was able to secure a $10,000 grant that we recently presented to Twin Valley Council/
Boy Scouts of America.

The Twin Valley Council was very deserving of this grant, as they serve 15 counties across southern Minnesota, from Austin to Redwood Falls and down to Jackson. The grant will go towards bathroom upgrades at Camp Norseland, near St. Peter, Minnesota, to accommodate females that have joined Scouting.

Out of the more than 1,000 agencies representing West Bend in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North
Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, AgQuest/MN River Insurance was the only Minnesota agency to receive a $10,000 grant to help support a local non-profit, two other agencies from Minnesota received $5,000 grants.

Since 2006, the West Bend Independent Agents’ Fund has awarded more than $1.4 million in grants which are used for sustaining support, special projects, or capital projects for nonprofit organizations that represent a broad field of interests, including, but not limited to arts and culture; education; the environment; family, youth, and elderly; health and human services; medical research; and community development.
