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).
2015: Supported the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Greater Charlotte by making backpacks (in partnership with T. Rowe Price).
2012: Supported Denver’s Lincoln Park by planting trees and cleaning up.
Special thanks to our brand partners T. Rowe Price and NEFE who helped to plan and support the community service events each year. Through their partnership, we’ve been able to donate over $5,000 to these organizations.
