Budros Ruhlin & Roe Winner of Annual Invest in Others Community Leadership Award

The Invest in Others Charitable Foundation announced the winner of its Corporate Philanthropy Award in the categories of Advisory Firms and Financial Institutions as part of the 2016 Community Leadership Awards.

Now in its tenth year, the Community Leadership Awards program recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world. Invest in Others launched the Corporate Philanthropy Award in 2015 to recognize the importance of encouraging philanthropy at a corporate level. The organization received dozens of nominations this year from a diverse range of companies in the financial services industry.

Finalists were selected based on their community impact, contribution, inspiration, and incentives to encourage employees to give back. Each winner will receive a $1,000 donation from Invest in Others for a charity of its choice.

“Our 2016 corporate finalists were a wonderful mix of small advisory firms and large financial services companies based in different communities across the country. Each finalist creatively incentivizes its employees to give back through programs such as volunteer time off, matching gifts, and volunteer events. What’s most striking is how successful these programs are – on average, 76% of employees and 82% of senior leadership participate – and the ten companies cumulatively volunteered 107,000 hours last year. The collective impact is incredible,” said Megan McAuley, Executive Director & President of Invest in Others.

By award category, the 2016 Corporate Philanthropy Award winners are:

Advisory Firms

  • Budros, Ruhlin & Roe, Inc.

Financial Institutions

  • Ameriprise Financial, Inc.

Awards were presented at the tenth annual Invest in Others Community Leadership Awards Gala, a premier event attended by over 500 financial advisors and financial services executives, on September 29, 2016 in New York City.
