RK Wins 2011 Better Business Bureau TORCH AWARD

We won the 2011 Better Business Bureau “Good Neighbor” TORCH AWARD for Community Service

BBB-Torch-Award-TucsonMay 12, 2011 was a very special day for Raskob Kambourian Financial Advisors, Ltd.!

From a stellar list of over 70 companies competing for the BBB Torch Awards, RK was selected for the “Good Neighbor” Award!

This award recognizes companies that have shown a commitment to making Southern Arizona a better place by playing a significant role in support of local charities.

RK was selected for its Community Service in the form of:

a.   Donations/contributions to local charities and non-profits
b.   Time spent as officers, board members, and program organizers
c.   Participation by RK management and staff in charitable events (including stuffing turkeys!)
d.   Sponsorships
e.   Our recommendations to our clients to contribute to local charities

As we compiled our list of involvement for our staff of nine, we discovered that RK has supported 32 charitable organizations over our 25 year history.  Some of these organizations were actually founded by the Pats.  The cash donations are quite significant, and the participation totaled over 100 years of combined staff time.  A representative list of these local charities includes:

The United Way
The Salvation Army
The Community Food Bank
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum
Rotary International
Leave-A-Legacy
Greater Tucson Leadership
The Arthritis Foundation
Second Century Foundation
Catholic Foundation
Pima Council on Aging (PCOA)
Southern Arizona Planned Giving Roundtable
MDA – Muscular Dystrophy Association
BBB – Better Business Bureau
The Caregiver Training Institute
The Red Cross
The Palo Verde Hospital Advisory Board
The Boys and Girls Clubs
Boy Scouts of America
and many others such at Little League and the Winterhaven Festival of Lights

We are proud of this special achievement . . . and, we are proud of the support provided by our wonderful clients.

We, at RK, realize that charitable works are part of the core of human dignity.  We understand that charity is as rewarding for the benefactor as it is for the recipient.

We believe that by brightening the days of those less fortunate, we will make the community a better place to live!
