Programs and Events
At our organization’s heart are the thousands of financial advisors who invest in others—giving their time, know how, and money to help those in need. From raising money for cancer research, to empowering women through financial education, to teaching children how to read, financial advisors truly make a difference in their communities. Through our programs and events, Invest in Others helps advisors leverage their charitable work and make an even bigger impact.
The Invest in Others Awards, our flagship program, recognizes the philanthropic contributions of financial advisors and firms in communities across the country and around the world. Awards are presented at our signature event, the annual Invest in Others Awards Gala. The Gala is a memorable evening for award finalists and winners, and a who’s who of over 500 advisors and financial services executives attend each year. To take a look back at our most recent Galas, please browse our Event Photos.
Our newest program is Days of Service, which inspires volunteerism in the financial advisory industry by providing an opportunity for individuals to come together, roll up their sleeves, and give back. Advisors, top sponsors, IIO Board members, friends and family joined together to volunteer at the New York Common Pantry in 2015 and at the Grand Street Settlement in 2016.
