Helping our neighbors and making our communities stronger is at the core of what we do
At the Reilly Financial Group we recognize the complexity of building comprehensive wealth and risk management solutions. We work with clients through every stage of their life, from planning for the future to planning a legacy.
We also work with our neighbors to make our communities stronger. From team volunteer activities with Catholic Charities, to support of local organizations such as Pillar College, Urban Impact, Edison Art Society and Embrace Kids. Individual team members also dedicate their personal time to causes such as Junior Achievement and the Special Olympics.
In 2014, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton, announced that Reilly Financial Group was selected to receive the organization’s Corporate Citizen of the Year Award. This award is given annually to companies that have partnered with Catholic Charities in its mission to provide essential services to the community’s poor and vulnerable.
The Reilly Financial Group was also recently recognized as Community Champion by MetLife and was honored at a MetLife Stadium event in December 2015. This recognition as a Community Champion is awarded to those who are seen as champions every day, giving their best to help their neighbors and are doing what it takes to make their communities stronger.
Catholic Charities, Diocese Trenton provides essential services to more than 100,000 New Jersey residents every year. Its services include basic needs like food, clothing and shelter plus specialized services such as drug treatment, mental health and legal support. Every day, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton, opens its doors to people from all backgrounds, religions, and ethnicities throughout Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties.
“We’re very grateful to all the Reilly Financial Group employees who take the time to come out and volunteer with Catholic Charities,” said Mary Pettrow, Catholic Charities spokesperson. “The firm has a long tradition of supporting Catholic Charities and we thank them for their support. Without the generosity of local volunteers like these, we would not be able to provide all the critical community services we do.”
2020 will go down in the history books as a year like no other. Social distancing and lockdown mandates kept the annual RFG Day of Caring from happening as usual. However, the team decided to give in another way this year. RFG made a donation to HomeFront, a local non profit organization which helps thousands of families every year who are homeless or very low income get all the help they need to become self sufficient. HomeFront has a comprehensive services program and answers over 29,000 cries for help per year related to temporary shelter, housing, education, job training and placement, children’s programs, food and urgently needed items, and so much more. HomeFront is an investment in breaking the cycle of poverty locally that we would like to support this holiday season, when our community is harder hit than ever by the pandemic.
