Omaha, Neb. – December 12, 2019 – Carson Group, a family of companies committed to being the most trusted for financial advice and guidance through serving advisors and investors, has been announced as one of twenty financial advisory firms selected for the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation’s 2019 Charitable Champions List.
The Charitable Champions List recognizes advisory firms for their exemplary efforts to give back to their communities by promoting a culture of philanthropy amongst employees and financial advisors. Invest in Others received dozens of applications, which were evaluated blindly by a judging panel made up of financial advisors. Applications were evaluated on criteria including employee benefits, company contributions, and philanthropic events and programs offered by the firms.
Carson Group has donated more than $100,000 over the past year to support non-profit organizations across various focus areas: Financial literacy organizations, education and youth programs, animal rescues, health and wellness, and hunger and poverty prevention.
Aaron Schaben, president of Carson Group, said, “This year has really showcased the give back culture here at Carson. While we offer programs like volunteer time off and matching gifts, our stakeholders really took it a step further in 2019. From supporting Nebraska flood relief efforts in the spring, to building homes with Habitat for Humanity, to gathering supplies over the past few weeks for the Stephen Center emergency shelter here in Omaha. They’ve championed their passions and causes, encouraged their fellow stakeholders to get involved, and have helped to make our community even stronger.”
