Savage earns national recognition for leadership in corporate philanthropy

Savage and Associates has been announced as one of only 20 financial advisory firms in the nation selected for the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation’s 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. Applications were evaluated by an expert judging panel on criteria including employee benefits, company contributions, and philanthropic events and programs offered by the firms.

“This honor represents the work of our many dedicated advisors and staff that give so much of their time to help others,” stated J.R. Toland, president and CEO, Savage and Associates. “We feel privileged to serve those in need across northwest Ohio and beyond.”

Savage and Associates holds several programs and events throughout the year, including the Savage Foundation Golf Classic, Savage 5K, and many other notable philanthropy endeavors. The Golf Classic alone has raised more than $1.3 million for charities since 2003.

Savage Golf Classic Scores Big

Golfers at Savage Golf Classic 2019

Shhh. Don’t tell Mother Nature, but the pesky rain took a break while we held the 16th Annual Savage Foundation Golf Classic. The popular charity event took place June 17 at Stone Oak Country Club. Three dozen foursomes participated in an exciting day of golf, fun, and community.

This year’s outing raised more than $80,000 for local charities. We distributed half of the proceeds at a reception following the golf, including $12,500 donations to both Racing for Recovery and SeaGate Food Bank. Remaining funds will help support other nonprofits throughout the year.

Since its inception in 2003, the Savage Foundation has raised more than $1.2 million for northwest Ohio charities. We couldn’t do it without the hundreds of friends and supporters who take part in the tournament each year. Thank you to everyone who attended; we appreciate all you do to support our charities.
