Community Involvement

Brown & Brown of Tampa's "Cheetahs for Charity" graphic


To improve the lives of those living in the Tampa Bay community
one life at a time…

Giving back to our community is one of the key values that sets Brown & Brown apart. Five years ago, our charitable foundation, Cheetahs for Charity, was created. Operated by a dedicated group of employee volunteers working in the Hillsborough and Pinellas county offices of Brown & Brown, Cheetahs for Charity’s mission is to move swiftly to respond to the needs of the Tampa Bay community. We actively support nonprofit organizations demonstrating significant community service involvement within the counties of Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota through the involvement of the 400-plus Brown & Brown employees based in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties who contribute time and treasure to respond to those in need.

Since 2010, Cheetahs for Charity has donated more than $720,000 to Bay Area non-profits with a track record of serving our community. United Way Suncoast named Brown & Brown of Florida one the of Top 100 Most Generous Places to work.
