Esurance Supports LGBT Pride with the Married Rate and $100K

Find out how LGBT couples can save with the married rate and how you can help us support LGBT causes.

LGBT pride

Here at Esurance, we take pride in embracing diversity in all its many forms and flavors. We are, after all, a modern company doing business in a modern world. As one of the first car insurance companies to offer the married rate to domestic partners, we’ve continued to push for it in all states … even those that don’t recognize LGBT unions.

Domestic partners get the married rate at Esurance

But we don’t just mean registered domestic partners or couples in civil unions (though they qualify too). We mean that if you and your partner are insured on the same Esurance policy, you’ll get the same great rates as married couples.

We offer this savings opportunity in every state where we do business, except Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Missouri where it has not been approved by the department of insurance.

There are 3 easy ways to get the married rate, depending on where you live. If you’re in a domestic partnership, select “domestic partner” for your marital status. For registered domestic partnerships in California, select “domestic partner (registered).” And, of course, if you’re married, just select “married.” (Note: in New York, where it’s legal to get married —hurrah!— you need to be married to qualify.) It’s as simple as that. Check it out here.

Additionally, if you and your significant other own more than one car and share the same garaging address, you might also qualify for the Multi-Car discount.

But beyond helping you save, we also believe in giving back. Each year, we ask our Facebook fans to take part in our donation campaign — whether through a simple “Like” of our Facebook page or a message of support for the LGBT community.

This year’s no exception. But we’ve decided to up the ante by donating $100K to LGBT causes!

Showing our Pride by donating $100K to LGBT orgs

Yup, this year, we ‘re giving away $100,000. That’s a lot of money. But rather than choosing just one recipient, we decided to spread the love … with a twist.

We selected 3 very different and very deserving LGBT organizations: GLAAD, The Trevor Project, and PFLAG. Each one received a portion of our donation based on input from our Facebook fans.

About GLAAD

GLAAD is the nation’s only organization working to build support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality through the power of the media. Learn more >

About The Trevor Project

Every day, The Trevor Project saves lives. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Learn more >

About PFLAG

PFLAG is the family and ally organization, committed to securing full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people through support, education, and advocacy. Learn more >

The results are in

Thanks to your input on Facebook, we’re donating $51,000 to The Trevor Project, $30,000 to GLAAD, and $19,000 to PFLAG. Thank you for helping to support equality.

    Wish you guys had opened it up to other groups. There are sooo many smaller groups that REALLY could use the money.

    GLAAD and Trevor are funded in the MILLIONS. There are smaller groups that actually do bigger things with less money. Maybe next time, how about asking for people to nominate other Gay and Lesbian (and transgender) groups?? :D

      That's a great suggestion, Rikki, and one that we will definitely take into account for our next campaign.Thanks for sending us your thoughts!

    Hey Jessica,
    I was also agreeing with Rikki, I work for Canvass for a Cause and we're federally recognized, but nowhere near the size of the other organizations that are listed and funded millions a year. We depend on the people and are the only group who only depend on using face-to-face discussions and persuasion conversations to bring people on board. Very grassroots. By all means I love these organizations, I mean I personally donate annually, but as Rikki said, there is these smaller groups that are doing good that need funding maybe a bit more.
    Although, thank you so much for your support; not just as a human being but as a member of the LGBT community as well.

    With gratitude,
    Mac McManus
