Whether you have the ideal history, preferred companies desire, or a not so perfect history, we find the right coverage, with the best company, at the best price for you.
Dasher Insurance has received industry-wide awards and recognition over the years, including earning the Senior Partner designation from Grange Insurance Company for 14 consecutive years. This honor is the company’s highest designation and is bestowed on less than 300 of Grange’s 3600 Agencies across the nation. Our agency was the first to receive the “Small Business of the Year” award from the Effingham Chamber of Commerce in 2009, and has been a Member of Distinction with the local Chamber for many years.
Dasher Insurance contributes to numerous organizations and clubs around the area.

Our agency donates to booster clubs for local schools around our community and also operates a food pantry for The BackPack Program for our local elementary schools. This program collects food and then distributes this food at the end of the week to children all over our county whose only meals are those that they get at school. Dasher Insurance also supports many individual and community fundraisers through schools, clubs, and churches, through sponsorships of competitions, auctions, athletic teams and more.
