A Year in Review: CFG Cares Committee

At Commonwealth Financial Group we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live. Our CFG Cares Committee, made up of a panel of staff members, supports this commitment by reviewing and spearheading volunteer and charitable opportunities for our firm and associates. Our committee also supports our advisors in their endeavors by assisting with charitable event sponsorships.

Some of the charities we have partnered with in 2017 include:

  • Alex’s Team Foundation
  • Autism Alliance
  • Best Buddies MA
  • Easter Seals – NH and MA
  • Families in Transition
  • Junior Achievement of Arkansas
  • Make A Wish – NH and VT
  • Matt T. Benoit Scholarship Fund
  • National Guard
  • New Heights
  • Salvation Army Santa Fund (Bell ringing, toy drive, gift distribution day)
  • Special Olympics
  • Wildflower Camp Foundation
  • Women's Initiative of the United Way of Central Mass.

Members of the CFG family draw the winning ticket for a raffle basket at the annual Easter Seals Walk & 5K Run in Manchester, NH.

The CFG Cares Committee plans social events for our firm to raise money for various charities. Here, advisors and staff members attended a paint night fundraiser. Proceeds were donated to the Salvation Army Santa Fund.

Earlier in the Fall, our Bedford, NH office held a Halloween Costume Drive. Donated costumes and Halloween accessories were delivered to Families in Transition for the children in their programs. This holiday season, our firm is holding a gift drive to provide gifts for two families in the FIT program.

Last week CFG associates attended the Santa Fund luncheon to celebrate the kick-off of the NH Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year.  Senior Partner TJ Shaughnessy has spearheaded our participation for several years. We enjoy donating to the toy drive and volunteering for bell ringing and toy distribution day.

We look forward to continuing our work with these charities and others in 2018!
