RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - December 31, 2013) - Henrico-based Allianz Global Assistance USA today named the recipients of the second and final wave of its 2013 corporate giving program. The Travel Aid Grant (TAG) program supports non-profit organizations across the country whose project, program or initiative is enhanced or achieved through travel.

Travel Aid Grants are administered by AGA's Corporate Social Responsibility team, who meet twice a year to award grants in a range of amounts based on a program's merits and beneficiaries. During this contribution wave, Allianz awarded three organizations a total of $10,000 in grants bringing the program's total to $30,000 for 2013.

Recipients of the second wave of 2013 philanthropic grants are:

Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center, Williamsburg, VA

Wilderness Inquiry, Minneapolis, MN

Make a Wish, Greater Virginia Chapter

Greg Lais, Wilderness Inquiry's Executive Director explained, "This grant from Allianz Global Assistance will be used to provide financial assistance so that persons with disabilities can participate on outdoor adventures as equals and peers with fellow Wilderness Inquiry travelers to places such as Alaska, the Grand Canyon, and the Boundary Waters. Shared travel experiences are a proven way of bringing people together, and we are grateful to Allianz Global Assistance for their vision and support in doing this."

"As a leading travel insurance provider, we give Americans the confidence they need to go new places and gain new experiences," said Alan Josephs, Chief Marketing Officer for Allianz Global Assistance USA.
