Saunders Insurance Agency Community Referral Program
Your referrals mean the world to us. We work hard to earn each referral with great service and appreciation for your business. As our way of saying thank you, we’re kicking off our new “Help Our Community” referral program. We love supporting the charitable efforts in our community, so we’ve tied referrals and charitable giving together. Here’s how it works:
Each time we receive a referral from you we will make a $10 donation to our Charity of Choice.
What qualifies as a referral? A referral is when we are contacted for a quote from someone saying you referred them to us.
For every referral we receive we will donate $10 to the local charity of choice. That’s it. The person you refer doesn’t have to purchase a policy from us if we’re not competitive for your referral to count. There are many worthy charitable organizations in our community. Help us help them.
