Community Service

We Care About the Communities We Serve

Tutwiler & Associates has always prided itself on being a good community citizen and aims to give back to the community when the opportunity presents itself. We are pleased to highlight the community service activities of our outstanding staff and applaud their ongoing efforts to make our community better such as this 2020 Public Adjuster School Donation at Christmas.


Metropolitan Ministries

Thanksgiving is a time to gather around loved ones, to be grateful for all that we have been so abundantly blessed with and to spare a thought for those who are not so lucky. Tutwiler & Associates is honored to support the hard work of Metropolitan Ministries by donating turkeys every year in order to make Thanksgiving possible for others. In addition, Public Adjuster Mike Platts has made special donations during the Christmas Season.

Samaritan's Purse

Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine. As a preferred charity of Tutwiler & Associates our firm has donated funds for Hurricane Dorian relief and previous hurricane disasters. See details 

The Katie Froeschle Foundation

The Katie Froeschle Foundation provides hope to many in our area by awarding scholarships to deserving students at Florida State University, funding innovative programs that distinguish Florida State as an exceptional institution, and providing grants to organizations that offer support and counseling to families coping with the traumatic loss of a loved one. 

The organization also supports the safety training of insurance claims adjusters, in memory of the Foundations's name sake who was murdered adjusting a claim in 2004. That support has turned into a book; Safety In The Field for Public Adjusters published by the American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters. Dick Tutwiler was an early supporter of this public adjuster safety effort and contributed to the book. You can read about those contributions here
