The inspiration for our organization came directly from the financial advisors who invest in others by giving back to their communities with overwhelming generosity and dedication. Since 2006, Invest in Others has amplified these efforts by providing a platform for advisors to increase awareness, visibility, and funding to their favorite non-profits.
Invest in Others recognizes individuals and firms that are making a difference by donating their time and money to causes that matter to them. By sharing their stories and awarding funding to these organizations, we raise awareness, encourage others to get involved, channel additional resources to those in need, and demonstrate the generosity of the financial advice industry.
Over the past eleven years, thanks to the ongoing support of our corporate sponsors, we’ve recognized advisors from a diverse range of firms, from wirehouses and independent broker-dealers to RIAs, and partnered with charities across a spectrum of causes.
Invest in Others Awards
The Invest in Others Awards program, previously known as the Community Leadership Awards, recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world.
Awards are presented at our signature event, the annual Invest in Others Awards Gala. Over 500 advisors and financial services executives attend this premier event each year to celebrate those individuals and firms that actively give back to their communities.
Since 2006, Invest in Others has donated more than $2 million to a variety of causes supported by the individuals and firms recognized through this program.
Day of Service
The Invest in Others Day of Service is a unique opportunity for advisors and individuals working in the financial services industry to come together and volunteer side-by-side to make an impact through service projects. The Day of Service held at a New York-area non-profit each fall. Our first Day of Service in 2015 was held at the New York Common Pantry and our second Day of Service in 2016 was held at the Grand Street Settlement.
