Raymond James Cares
Raymond James is a leader in philanthropy because our associates and advisors are leaders in their communities. We make a difference to build, strengthen and grow our communities. And we do so, together.
Caring for our communities
Across the firm, you’ll see Raymond James associates and advisors giving back to others in countless ways, supporting the arts, the United Way, and a host of educational, civic, social and philanthropic endeavors.
Together, Raymond James, associates and advisors support 500+ organizations annually.
In 2018, we collectively donated more than $56.4 million to charitable organizations, including nearly $6.25 million the United Way and it's partner agencies through our corporate match program.
Raymond James supports many of these organizations through sponsorships, including Raymond James Stadium, American Stage Theatre Company at Raymond James Theatre, the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, and more.
Last year, we recorded more than 164,000 total volunteer hours to organizations near and dear to our hearts.
While Raymond James Cares is a year-long community involvement initiative, one month each year is officially designated as "Raymond James Cares Month" – a period of 31 days when our advisors and associates team up to give back to their communities.
Last August during Raymond James Cares Month, we reached recording-breaking results: more than 2,500 professionals hosted over 200 volunteer projects across 112 local communities in 30 U.S. states and the United Kingdom, contributing more than 7,250 hours to benefit 172 non-profit organizations.
This year, our 7th annual Raymond James Cares Month will move to May, when we'll combine efforts with Raymond James Limited in Canada to make an even bigger difference in our communities.
Raymond James responded with disaster relief in the fall, offering aid to the Carolinas, Florida Panhandle, and southern Georgia and Alabama impacted by two powerful hurricanes, as well as the regions in California devastated by wildfires. To help rebuild our communities, the firm donated $400,000 and associates raised $12,880.
