A New Way to Support Our Cause

Waterboys Team

July 23, 2020

We are pleased to announce a fundraising promotion with the Kerney Insurance Agency from now through September 30.  Founded by fellow former UVA and NFL Defensive End Patrick Kerney, the agency has historically donated 5% of it’s pre-tax income to Waterboys.  This new promotion will donate 100% of revenue they earn from the personal policies (Home, Auto, Umbrella, etc.) of our supporters who elect to participate.  As an agency commission is embedded in most people’s insurance expenses, this is a great way to turn this existing expense into support for our mission.

If you would like to participate, simply send an email to with the code WATERBOYS in the subject line and a member of the Kerney Insurance team will be able to assist you from there. If you’re content with your current insurance program they can service those same policies.  Otherwise the team at Kerney will work through the marketing of your program in an effort to enhance coverage and pricing.

Here are some of the available carriers:
