TFC Financial Launches Charitable Foundation

TFC Financial Launches Charitable Foundation

Community Focus Advances the Firm's Values

TFC Financial, a Boston-based Registered Investment Advisor, has launched the TFC Financial Charitable Foundation to express the firm’s values and advance its commitment to promoting financial literacy and supporting the greater Boston community.

“This is something we have been considering for some time and are so pleased that it has come to fruition,” said CEO Renée Kwok. “As a wealth management firm, we frequently counsel clients on charitable giving strategies. With the new foundation, we are establishing our own philanthropic legacy for the firm.”

The foundation’s mission is threefold: to promote financial literacy; to provide education and information about behavioral finance to help people stay on track to achieve their financial goals; and to support local social programs. The initial funding of the foundation came from the firm’s partners and shareholders – both past and present – via personal capital. Ongoing funding will come from the firm’s annual profits. There will be no solicitation or acceptance of clients’ funds.

This is something we have been considering for some time and are so pleased that it has come to fruition. As a wealth management firm, we frequently counsel clients on charitable giving strategies. With the new foundation, we are establishing our own philanthropic legacy for the firm.
