We support the inclusion of qualified candidates of all backgrounds to serve in our industry as credentialed financial advisors. Thus, we are in our second year of a four-year $100,000 diversity scholarship with the CFP Board. Called the Parsec Financial CFP® Certification Diversity Scholarship, it aims to advance diversity in the financial planning profession by providing financial assistance to qualified individuals in the Southeastern United States who are from underrepresented populations in the profession and who strive to obtain the CFP® certification. In total, it will provide 16 scholarships of $5,000 each to deserving applicants. We look forward to learning more about our scholarship recipients!
One of the fundamental values at Parsec is giving back to the communities in which we serve. We have long maintained a significant commitment to charitable giving and this core value is why we established the Parsec Prize in 2005.
The Parsec Prize is designed to help local non-profits further their missions and help improve the lives of those served in our communities. Since 2005, Parsec has awarded more than $1.9 million in Parsec Prize grants to 101 local non-profits. The Parsec Prize represents approximately one-half of Parsec’s annual charitable giving.
Each year, as we review Parsec Prize candidates, we are reminded in powerful ways of the invaluable work by our area nonprofit organizations. Their work is honorable and they service critical missions. Many of these entities are quiet champions, advocating for people in difficult circumstances. We are honored to know them and contribute to their success.
