Jon Dewar and the RetirementGeeks are passionate about giving back and supporting the local community. When we meet with a client about their retirement planning the subject of charitable giving often comes up in conversation. Depending on a client’s situation we often recommend some form of charitable giving whether giving to a local non-profit or their place of worship.
RetirementGeeks has had the pleasure of donating to multiple charitable organizations including Junior Achievement, Girls on the Run, Community Music School and Community Workforce Solutions.
February 2014 - A group from RetirementGeeks.com attended the 8th Annual Junior Achievement (JA) Valentine's Day Vegas Gala at the Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. This annual fund-raising event combines Vegas style games with dinner. Attendees have the opportunity to bid on donated silent auction items to help support the mission of JA.
JA programs deal with real issues like workforce readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship so that young people can not only understand their opportunities in life but can also take advantage of those opportunities.
