Community Highlight - For Good Foundation Gala

At Rathbun Insurance, we understand the power of community and the pivotal role women play in shaping its future. Our commitment to fostering leadership and supporting community initiatives goes beyond insurance services. We take pride in uplifting organizations that tirelessly work towards making our community a better place. One such endeavor we proudly sponsor is the For Good Foundation.

In the heart of the For Good Foundations family businesses, Rathbun Insurance and Elderly Instruments, community service has always been a guiding force. Ben Rathbun, steering Rathbun Insurance into its third generation, and Lillian Werbin, steward of Elderly Instruments' second-generation legacy, have long dreamed of creating a foundation that could truly touch lives.

On August 21, 2021, life threw a curveball their way with the sudden loss of E. Paul Rathbun II, to a sudden heart attack. Just two days later, amid the heaviness of grief, the For Good Foundation was born. It was their way of transforming pain into purpose, honoring Paul's memory with actions that mattered to the community he loved.

Their mission is —to gently inspire small acts of goodness. The foundation is  committed to making a positive impact, one that may not steal the show but leaves a heartfelt warmth in people's

hearts.Paul’s spirit propels their journey. He embodied making a difference without seeking the spotlight. The For Good Foundation aims to honor his love for the community by quietly spreading kindness in meaningful ways.

On December 30, 2023, Rathbun Insurance team members attended the For Good Foundation Gala, an event that resonated deeply with our commitment to community service. The gala was an evening of inspiration, bringing together like-minded individuals and organizations dedicated to making a positive impact.

As we reflect on this event, we are reminded of the power of collective goodness. The gala served as a platform to celebrate the small acts of kindness that, when woven together, create a tapestry of positivity. It was a testament to the enduring spirit of community service that drives us at Rathbun Insurance. At Rathbun Insurance, we are not just in the business of insurance; we are in the business of making a difference. Join us on this journey, and let's continue to spread kindness and warmth throughout our community.
