  • The Beginning

    The Beginning

    Mark Casady, Chairman and CEO of LPL Financial, and his wife, Julia, heard story after story of advisors’ overwhelming generosity and commitment to helping others. They were inspired to establish a public charity devoted to recognizing this valuable work and, in 2006, the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation was born. Mark served on our Board of Directors in the early years, where his vision and leadership were critical to the growth of the organization. Ten years later, Invest in Others is now the premier, industry-wide non-profit dedicated to recognizing, encouraging, and supporting the charitable work of financial advisors and the advisory industry.
