Much of the funding for this safety training and the grain bin rescue equipment was obtained from the Nationwide Foundation who holds a contest to raise money for this safety equipment and training. Nationwide is dedicated to improving the quality of life in communities in which a large number of Nationwide members, associates, partners and their families live and work. Since 2000, the Nationwide Foundation has contributed more than $430 million to nonprofit organizations across the country that work to meet crucial needs in communities with a significant presence of Nationwide associates.
