How the Charities APHW Supports Change Communities and Lives

America's Preferred Home Warranty, Philanthropy

While America’s Preferred Home Warranty (APHW) is known for our helpful home warranties and award-winning customer service, we also dedicate our resources to positively impacting communities, collaborating regularly with organizations that support positive changes and improve lives.

Health Initiatives

These organizations strive to eliminate disease, detect it early, and help those who are currently affected. We work alongside them to make the next generation a healthier one.

  • Relay for Life of Jackson County: The American Cancer Society began this initiative to raise money and awareness to make cancer a thing of the past. We hold fundraisers for the cause all year long, culminating in a two-day event for each chapter nationwide to celebrate fighters and survivors, and to remember those we’ve lost. This cause is close to our heart, as our original owner, Doris Anderson, ultimately lost her battle with this disease. We’ve honored her legacy by raising record amounts in her honor.
  • Children's Miracle Network (CMN): From babies in the NICU to children who have experienced trauma, funding for CMN closes financial gaps so pediatric patients can get the medical care they need.
  • Cleveland Clinic Children's—Rehabilitation Center: Sometimes, medical conditions/injuries affect a child’s ability to use their bodies to their fullest potential. This program helps children stay physically strong and keep their changing bodies moving.
  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Each year, this legendary hospital puts 82% of all donations toward dramatically increasing childhood cancer survival rates while covering costs for 8,600 pediatric patients annually.
  • Project Detect: Each year, residents in Florida’s Riverwood community take part in a 5K and golf tournament to raise funds for early cancer detection screenings for un- or underinsured residents in Charlotte County, Florida. Proceeds from the last decade have exceeded $350,000.

Special Communities

These agencies know that a community cannot be at its best until all its members are cared for, and they work tirelessly to ensure that no one is forgotten.

  • Child and Family Charities: For over 110 years, this nonprofit has been a resource for youth and families who are under-resourced and/or processing trauma. Their 30+ divisions and programs have broken generational cycles—producing more positive outcomes for children, adolescents, and their parents—while funds raised from events like their annual Red Nose Ruckus allow them to be a guiding light for more than 8,000 youth and families.
  • Jackson Interfaith Shelter: Beyond providing >60,000 warm meals and >1,000 nights in warm beds each year, this facility also provides stability and resources to help people regain the footing needed to rebuild their lives.
  • Rock of Ages Prison Ministry: This group has spent the last 40 years sharing the Gospel in schools, in both English and Spanish, in correctional facilities, and on five continents, reaching more than 660,000.
  • Special Olympics of Michigan: For 50+ years, this entity has made 25 individual and team sports possible for nearly 24,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities, creating space for them to thrive in sports.
  • Wounded Warrior Project: This organization facilitates camaraderie in over 15 programs that uplift nearly 122,000 retired and current military members, especially those with mental and/or physical injuries.


Each winter, Santa’s little helpers bring Christmas cheer to those who would otherwise go without.

Santa's Wishlist: With more than 2,500 children reached, this 501(c)(3) organization unites residents across multiple states in the giving spirit of the season.

All-Community Organizations

At both Jackson, Michigan locations, the Y (aka the YMCA) promotes health and growth for all people and the whole person.

  • Jackson YMCA: For the last 125 years, they have lived out the Y’s core values of honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility, and it’s only getting better!
