  • Foresters Financial launches Foresters Renew™

    January 9, 2023 by The Independent Order of Foresters

    TORONTOJan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Foresters Financial™ (Foresters), the fraternal life insurer that’s boldly redefining the life insurance industry through innovation, purpose and wellness, today announced the launch of Foresters RenewTM grants. [1]

    Many of our members are faced with uncertain times as the world of work has transformed with digital and technological advancements post-pandemic. There is a new-found need to future-proof people’s skills and ease this transition for those who want and need to learn and grow.

    Foresters Renew will provide opportunities for members to gain new marketable skills in support of their professional goals and career growth through continuous learning, and the means to do so by offsetting costs through reimbursements or financial assistance.  The grant can be used toward course tuition and course-specific required materials such as books and tools.

    “We’re very excited and proud to introduce Foresters Renew and to be the first fraternal organization to offer a reimbursement or continuing education benefit to our members,” said Louis Gagnon, Foresters Financial President and CEO. “Foresters members now have the opportunity to strengthen and maintain their skills to make their goals more attainable, differentiate their professional profile, explore new challenges and take the next steps in their careers.”

    The Foresters Renew member benefit offers up to 375 grants annually to eligible member applicants. The grants will be equally divided between Canadathe United States, and the United Kingdom, with each having 125 grants available across two cycles. Each grant is valued up to $/£ 1,000 (in local currency). Members in Canada and the United States must enroll in courses within North America, while members in the United Kingdom must enroll in courses within the United Kingdom.

    Courses eligible for reimbursement or financial assistance include, but are not limited to, formal college-credit courses, both online and in-person; non-credit or non-degree adult education courses; private, business, or technical school courses; and recertifications for existing licenses.  Eligible courses must have an evaluation component offered by an accredited private or public institution. 

    “In an environment defined by increasing economic uncertainty, we’re honoured to introduce this benefit and advocate for the long-term economic well-being of our members, while also alleviating onerous educational costs – that’s life insurance with a larger purpose,” Mr. Gagnon added.

    Beginning on January 3, 2023, Foresters members are invited to apply for Foresters Renew grants.  Grant applications will be reviewed and awarded on a first come, first served basis.  Applicants must be Foresters members, in good standing, and at least 18 years of age.  Members are eligible to receive one reimbursement/financial assistance grant per year; applications are accepted throughout the calendar year until spots are filled.  Dependents of members are not eligible to receive this benefit.
