Our Atlanta office chose FurKids as our Raymond James Cares project. The office collected items such as food, toys and cleaning products, as well as cash donations, for the organization. FurKids is the largest no-kill animal shelter for dogs and cats in Georgia.
Our Raymond James & Associates teams in Cincinnati, Ohio, packed meals to serve 1,080 children in need through the Freestore Foodbank of Cincinnati.
The Freestore Foodbank of Cincinnati, Ohio, is the largest emergency food and services provider in the Tri-State area, providing more than 20 million meals annually over a 20-county region in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
Raymond James was honored to participate in the Habitat for Humanity Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter Work Project in August 2016. Firm leaders Mat Parker, Will Deupree, Gavin Murrey and Jan Gwin joined the Carters and more than 300 volunteers to help build a home for a deserving family in the Uptown neighborhood. The team worked in intense heat from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but they found their work inspiring and rewarding.
Raymond James Limited donated more than $1 million during calendar year 2016 to more than 300 national and local charities through the Raymond James Canada Foundation. Additionally, Raymond James Limited volunteered more than 2,218 hours in support of 58 charities during Raymond James Cares Month.
At the corporate level, Raymond James Limited hosts and supports annual philanthropic events, such as the Raymond James Father's Day Walk/Run in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of British Columbia; the Ride to Conquer Cancer in support of cancer research that takes place in major Canadian cities; an associate matching program in support of the Fort McMurray fire relief; as well as an annual corporate-associate matching campaign in support of local charities.
In January 2016, led by CEO Paul Allison, RJL volunteers fundraised and delivered 3,000 bed kits in a week-long, self-funded trip to children in Belgaum, India. These kits provided backpacks filled with essentials including bedrolls and much needed school uniforms, as well as supplies mandatory for entry into primary school.
Associates from the Raymond James United Kingdom office are active in the local community supporting a variety of efforts, such as running marathons and participating in other fundraising events in support of St. Francis Hospice and the British Heart Foundation. Associates also organized bake sales, an office tuck shop and a fancy dress Halloween party, all raising funds in support of hospitals and charities supporting disabled children as well as adults experiencing mental and physical health issues.
