Close to 4,000 Cetera Financial Group advisors, as well as employees of the independent broker-dealer network, raised $210,000 for youth at its recent national conference in Denver.
Funds raised via Caring Cetera will fund Youth on Record, a group with a program that focuses on getting musicians into high school classrooms to support academic success.
“We were proud to fund-raise for Youth on Record this year, to help children and teens in the area through music: students who engage in music outperform their peers in GPA, graduation rates & standardized tests,” according to Cetera Chief Financial Officer Jeff Buchheister.
Cetera advisors and staff formed Caring Cetera in 2011; those affiliated with or employed by First Allied Securities and Summit Brokerage participate in Caring Cetera philanthropic and fundraising efforts year-round.
(The firm’s broker-dealer network also includes Cetera Advisors, Cetera Advisor Networks, Cetera Financial Institutions and Cetera Financial Specialists.)
