April 15, 2019 | TAMPA – SafePoint Insurance renewed and deepened its support of Step Up For Students by announcing its contribution to the statewide nonprofit that distributes scholarships to low-income K-12 schoolchildren.
Based in Tampa, Fla., SafePoint Insurance’s 2019 contribution will fund 37 scholarships during the 2018-19 school year. This contribution marks the fifth consecutive year SafePoint Insurance has partnered with Step Up For Students through a tax-credited contribution.
SafePoint Insurance specializes in residential property insurance products and sees its support of Step Up For Students as an extension of its corporate mission and an honorable investment in the community.
