Weaver & Associates Awards $10,000 Donation to Pasadena’s NeuroTalent Works
Weaver & Associates, Inc. has officially awarded a $10,000 donation to Pasadena’s NeuroTalent Works, a local organization dedicated to building neurodiverse workplaces and transitioning individuals with autism, traumatic brain injuries and other cognitive challenges into meaningful employment at corporations. The $10,000 award will help support NeuroTalent Works’ Talent Readiness Program that offers free services to prepare and equip neurodivergent job candidates to secure gainful corporate employment. This includes self-advocacy training, mock interviews and quarterly peer networking groups.
Dana Dattola, Agency Principal, Weaver & Associates originally received a $5,000 donation for NeuroTalent Works thanks to a submission process with Liberty Mutual® and Safeco Insurance® through their 2023 Make More Happen™ Awards. A story of their local partnership was featured on the official Make More Happen microsite, www.agentgiving.com/Weaver-and-Associates, where Weaver & Associates had the opportunity to raise an additional $5,000 by conducting a local awareness campaign for the nonprofit. Together with the community, the goal was met increasing the total donation to $10,000 for NeuroTalent Works!
Throughout 2023, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select up to 37 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $370,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application and photos demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit.
