Since the beginning, our vision for FinCon has extended beyond helping just the financial media community. While helping our community create, promote, and profit is our main mission, we also want FinCon to help meet more immediate, local needs as well.

Each year at FinCon, we have a hands-on community service project opportunity for attendees to participate in. Here’s who we’ve supported through the years:

2021: Supported Project Helping, a Colorado-based non-profit focused on improving mental wellness, by assembling Kynd Kits, care packages that were assembled and then sent back to Project Helping for distribution to a variety of people in need. Examples included financial literacy kits, elder care kits, foster care packages, dignity bags for the homeless, and more. (in partnership with NEFE).

2019: Supported Champions of Change by assembling 600 birthday bags for children in the foster care system (in partnership with NEFE).

2018: Supported HandsOn Orlando by creating STEM Kits to promote both financial literacy and STEM skills in underserved local schools (in partnership with NEFE).

2017: Supported Trusted World with relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey (in partnership with NEFE).

2016:  Supported Monarch Schools by prepping backpacks for San Diego’s homeless students (in partnership with NEFE).

2015: Supported the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Greater Charlotte by making backpacks (in partnership with T. Rowe Price).

2014: Supported HandsOn New Orleans by creating STEM Kits for a charter school (in partnership with T. Rowe Price).

2012: Supported Denver’s Lincoln Park by planting trees and cleaning up.

2011: Supported Phil’s Friends, a cancer support organization, with headquarters clean up and letter writing (in partnership with Love Drop and Adaptu).
