Schauer Group, the region’s innovative risk management, business insurance and human capital services firm, has announced that six Cleveland-area nonprofits are finalists in the company’s Century of Service program.
The Century of Service program is designed to provide nonprofits who are physically located in or offer services in the Cleveland metro area the opportunity to compete for an awards package that includes a donation of 100 service hours from Schauer Group associates and a one-time cash donation of $5,000.
Community voting was open from June 1-16, 2019. Voting was open to the community at large, including any employees, board members or clients of the competing organizations. Each individual could cast one single vote each day during the voting window.
The Century of Service finalists are:

- Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity: Service hours would be used for a Habitat construction project. The financial donation would be used to help provide a safe, affordable home for a future Habitat homebuyer.
- The Haven Home: Service hours would be used to hang curtains, decorate rooms and do outside landscaping. The financial donation would be used to create an outdoor seating area for the families.
