Local

One of our cornerstone statements is to enrich our community. In 2015, we were honored with the Arizona Governor's Award for Volunteerism due to our efforts for serving in various capacities throughout the state and beyond. Throughout the year we have several opportunities for our advisors and staff to give back in both group and individual settings. 

Elevate Phoenix Backpack Drive, Adopt a Military Family for the Holidays, Every Kid Counts Toy Drive Equitable Day of Service: Hacienda House, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Junior Achievement of Arizona, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale.

Weekend Jetaway Our Scottsdale office developed a firm-wide giving initiative, which led to the creation of a now annual event, Weekend Jetaway. Weekend Jetaway is the brainchild of Equitable Advisors and partners as both a way to bring its own staff together on a volunteer effort and raise funds for charity via an evening of gourmet food and drink, live music, surprise entertainers and a live auction that that will culminate with four lucky guests winning a luxurious two-night, three day round trip vacation on their very own private jet (all donated). Since inception in 2012, Weekend Jetaway has grossed more than $650,000 for local charities and continues to build momentum every year. It has now turned into an anticipated charity event with 1000+ guests. Most importantly, with all the fun comes a chance to make a big impact on the benefiting charity and our community.
