While most commonly thought of in terms of financial aid for education, scholarships come in all shapes and sizes. We want to help raise the awareness of the need for scholarships simply because they help people realize their dreams!
Giving back is a central theme in our philosophy and as such, Team Advocate donates much of their time, talents and resources to help those who are less fortunate. As Denise Koslowsky, one of the principals at Advocate shared, “We are so happy to be able to give back to the community, we always try to give back and help hands on whenever we can. It is so important to us to give back to those who are less fortunate.”
We have recently made donations to two esteemed organizations within our community. These donations served as scholarships because they made it possible for people to move toward the realization of their dreams.
Do you feel motivated to share your resources but are not sure where to give? Below are two organizations for which Advocate Brokerage has donated funds in the form of scholarships. Maybe one will inspire you to give back!
