Thanks to support from the community, Johnson Insurance has awarded a $10,000 donation to Cognition, a local organization dedicated to providing an interactive space that promotes exploration, learning, and innovation with the goal of investing in current and future generations.

The $10,000 will help fund Cognition’s staff development and upgrading internal software systems. Cognition recognizes that an organization is only as strong as its people and wants to ensure that they will be led well for years to come by devoting to professional training, said Jessica Huyett, Cognition site coordinator.

Jessica Yarbrough, vice president of operations of Johnson Insurance, originally received a $5,000 donation for Cognition thanks to a submission process with Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance through the 2022 Make More Happen Awards.

A story of the local partnership was featured on the official Make More Happen microsite,, where an additional $5,000 was raised by conducting a local awareness campaign for the nonprofit.
