Our Commitment To Our Community

We all deserve the chance for a life of security, faith, family, friends, and prosperity. That’s why we are committed to helping create a community of equality where everyone has the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

While we are passionate about many causes, the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted with devastating clarity just how imperative it is to focus on our fight against racism.

Internal Initiatives

We were recently inspired by the Harvard Business Review article U.S. Businesses Must Take Meaningful Action Against Racism, and we are committing to internal change with the following action plan:

This list is by no means exhaustive, but our immediate steps are:

  • Mandatory anti-bias and anti-racism training for our diverse internal team beginning on June 19th. Juneteenth is an American holiday commemorating the end of the enslavement of black people in 1865 and will become a marker in our firm's history to combat racism.
  • Increased scrutiny, due diligence, and accountability of our vendors and external strategic alliances about their commitment to anti-racism.
  • Supporting an increased inflow of fundraising dollars to organizations that improve the condition of black people.

Not-For-Profit Initiatives

Our not-for-profit efforts draw from the HEMS standard used in estate and trust planning to identify and found charities with missions that enhance the health, education, maintenance, and support of black people.
