Mutual Aid Ministries created the Agent Community Grant program to help our independent agents become more involved in their communities, and to build stronger relationships between MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) and its independent agencies.  We believe this program exemplifies the fair, faithful and socially responsible way MAX and our agents do business.  We hope the program encourages our agents to become more engaged in their communities and to feel a stronger commitment to MAX as the carrier of choice for their clients and prospects.


MAX Community Grants are intended to help locally-based charitable or community service causes within the agents’ communities.  Grants should be used for specific items, programs or initiatives that directly serve the community and/or the beneficiaries of the project.

Recipient charity organizations must be registered 501(c)3 non-profit groups with a charitable, education or religious purpose. Tax ID numbers may be found at
