The Invest in Others Awards
Previously known as the Community Leadership Awards
The Invest in Others Awards, previously known as the Community Leadership Awards, is a program that recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services companies 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 to celebrate those individuals and firms that actively give back to their communities.
Financial advisors may be nominated for one of the following five awards:
- Catalyst Award
- Community Service Award
- Global Community Impact Award
- Volunteer of the Year Award
- Lifetime Achievement Award
Nominations are evaluated based on an advisor’s leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a non-profit and the community it serves. Three finalists are selected in each of the five categories with one winner being chosen for each award. Award finalists and winners receive generous donations from Invest in Others to their designated charities. Finalists will receive $5,000, winners will receive $20,000, and the Lifetime Achievement Award winner will receive $25,000.
Financial services companies may be nominated for the Corporate Philanthropy Award for demonstrating an ongoing commitment to encouraging philanthropic activities amongst their employees, financial advisors, and senior leaders. Companies can be nominated in one of two categories: Advisory Firms or Financial Institutions.
