Giving Back

Together, we make a difference.

“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work.” It’s a phrase that has been part of our mission from the beginning. It’s a commitment to putting others first – from our clients to our neighbors – that was established at our founding in 1962 and has shaped who we are today.

Committed to caring

More than five decades later, we’re proud to continue the legacy – started by Raymond James founder Bob James, grown by his son and longtime Chairman and CEO Tom James, and now continued by our Chairman and CEO Paul Reilly, advisors and associates – by investing our time, money and talents into the communities we serve. It’s so much more than tradition; it’s part of who we are.

Charitable Giving

As a financial services firm, we have a unique understanding of the power of charitable giving, which is why we seek to practice it generously.

Volunteerism

The ways we give back extend beyond the financial. Our associates are also enthusiastically generous with their time and get out to give back.
