Foresters Financial is excited and proud to announce we have been named as a finalist in the 2018 Money Management Institute/Barron’s Industry Awards in the ”Doing Good” category. The MMI/Barron’s Industry Awards celebrate outstanding achievement and honors firms that have raised the bar by delivering superior solutions for financial advisors and investors over the past year at their annual gala. The Awards consist of 10 specialized categories and include three to four finalists in each category. The “Doing Good” award honors programs that support a deserving cause or give back to the communities they serve.
One program that we were particularly proud to highlight is our ongoing partnership with KaBOOM! Since 2006, Foresters Financial has built 150 beautiful play spaces across North America in conjunction with this national non-profit dedicated to ensuring that all kids get a childhood filled with balance and active play activities. Thanks to the hard work of nearly 10,000 Foresters Financial members, sales partners and guests for the last 12 years, we are positively impacting the lives of more than 5 million children by providing them with access to fun and safe areas to play.
Foresters Financial believes in enriching lives and building strong communities at its core. It has defined our company since 1874. Our ability to impact everyday families in times of need and our commitment to people and their communities are as important to us as the products we sell. Many organizations have an emerging focus on social responsibility, but we have been delivering on this purpose for more than 140 years.
Nominations are reviewed and evaluated by the specially-appointed MMI Industry Awards Steering Council and by the MMI Membership Experience Committee. Award winners are determined by a vote of primary contacts at each member firm. These individuals receive an online ballot and cast their votes among the finalists.
