Newport Beach, California – July 14, 2014 – Beacon Pointe Advisors, one of the nation’s largest independent Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firms with headquarters in Newport Beach, announced today a new program that will allow its employees to volunteer their time with a favorite charity or nonprofit organization while still getting paid for a full day’s work.
Beacon Pointe is well known for its work with 60+ nonprofit clients ranging from healthcare foundations, university endowments, religious organizations and Native American organizations across Southern California and beyond. The company’s Institutional Consulting Services team provides investment guidance and oversight to endowments, foundations and other nonprofit institutions such as the Pacific Symphony, Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Association, The Girl Scouts of Orange County, and the Orange County Community Foundation. Many of Beacon Pointe’s consultants also serve on investment committees of nonprofit organizations in Orange County and strongly believe in the need to give back to their community.
The firm’s latest policy has taken that charitable desire a step further by encouraging all employees to get involved as well.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said CEO and Founder Garth Flint. “Beacon Pointe has always had a strong culture and commitment to serving and supporting our local communities. Our employees are consistently involved in numerous causes, and instituting our Paid Day of Service policy is just another way to reinforce all the great work being done in Orange County.”
Beacon Pointe’s “Paid Day of Service” policy has immediately granted all employees an additional paid day of leave for the purpose of volunteering for a 501c3 charity, foundation or endowment organization.
