Supporters Can Help Double the Donation to $10,000 by Voting for their Agent Giving Story  Via Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and Safeco Insurance  

VermontBiz Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance have awarded NFP a 2023 Make More Happen Award for its volunteerism with the Alzheimer's Association, Vermont Chapter, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The award includes an initial donation of $5,000 for the Alzheimer's Association, which can be doubled to $10,000 just by having community supporters vote online. 

Starting Monday, August 7 the NFP and Alzheimer's Association community story will be highlighted on the official Make More Happen microsite at, where supporters can vote to help the team reach their donation goal. If the featured story receives a mix of at least 500 votes and comments, the $5,000 donation will be raised to $10,000. The donation will allow the Vermont Chapter to recruit new volunteers and expand outreach efforts with their support programs to better help individuals and their care partners navigate this disease.

“NFP is honored to contribute our support efforts to help the Alzheimer's Association continue their search for the best and most promising cure for this disease,” said Amanda Fenoff, NFP Assistant Vice President. “We are grateful to Liberty Mutual and Safeco for providing much-needed funds to continue their impactful work and thrilled at the opportunity to double the donation just by calling on the community to show their support.” 

NFP’s previous owner and principal, Nancy Poulos, began her involvement with the nonprofit nearly 10 years ago when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and she couldn’t help but feel helpless witnessing the disease take over. Poulos states that “Winning this Make More Happen Award through NFP’s continued support and volunteerism has given purpose to my family's suffering while such initiatives also foster hope for a cure in the future.” 

Continuing to spread awareness across the state, the NFP team supports the annual Northeast Kingdom Walk to End Alzheimer’s by acting as a sponsor, volunteering their time and participating in the walk. Additionally, the agency hosts events to raise funds for Alzheimer's care and research by putting on cornhole tournaments and dance parties featuring local bands where admission is a donation that goes back to the organization.  

“NFP is a shining example of our independent agents’ endless dedication to their nonprofit partners through their volunteering, fundraising and overall awareness efforts,” said Deborah Bissell, Safeco Insurance Northeast Region Senior Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen Awards allow our agents to spread the word about their good deeds and we hope it inspires others across the Northeast Kingdom to get involved.”  

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.
