Gallagher Insurance | Charter First
Metairie, LA

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. was founded in 1927 by its namesake. Today, Gallagher is one of the world’s largest insurance brokers and risk management services firms, with operations in 33 countries and client-service capabilities in more than 90 countries. Gallagher's reputation as a highly ethical company and our commitment to transparency has been a part of our philosophy and culture, since our inception.

For six years in a row, from 2012 to 2017, we have been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, and hold the distinction as the only insurance broker to receive this designation. 

K-12 scholastic organizations are striving to achieve peak performance. But with challenges like changing workforce demographics, regulatory complexity, and a competitive labor market, the right path might not be clear. As a growing, industry-leading provider of employee benefits brokerage, consulting and administrative services, Gallagher is well positioned to develop and administer programs that support a marketplace advantage for your organization. Today’s complex marketplace requires a trusted partner who is committed to making a genuine difference in the health and welfare of both your valued employees and your bottom line. Gallagher combines innovative solutions and thoughtful advice with transparent and ethical business practices to help fuel your growth and minimize risk, all while providing superior, cost-effective benefit products and services that meet the ever-changing needs of employers.

Increasingly, K-12 employers are challenged with the cost of healthcare and other benefits that have rapidly encroached on operational funding, negatively impacting staff resources and facilities. This creates significant challenges for budgeting and decision-making. While operating from a primarily tax-based revenue stream, schools have reached a point where total compensation is relatively robust, but there’s a lag in creative solutions to control costs amidst diminished funding. 

Arthur J. Gallagher is the leader in the K-12 market and knows how to ensure the success of your organization as becoming a workplace destination that attracts and retains the very best employees.


Designed by experts in the education arena, the Charter First Insurance program was first created in 2007 as a response to the growing need for appropriate insurance at the right price for charter schools in California.

As the charter school movement has begun to take hold nationally, the program has expanded to have a footprint across the United States. Our program has been designed to correctly address the exposures of the charter school sector. We provide superior coverage and risk management, to keep your school and your kids safe, all at the lowest possible price. By participating in Charter First Insurance, you can have the peace of mind to know you have the right insurance coverage and the help to keep your school safe and prevent accidents and losses. Money that you save on insurance and losses can be put to much better use—whether it is filling that very needed new teaching position, buying computers, going on that field trip, or paying for staff development.
