Raymond James donates over $2 million to aid those impacted by COVID-19
"It is our responsibility to begin addressing the needs in communities in which we live and work," Chairman and CEO Paul Reilly said.
Raymond James associates volunteer their time at Gleaners Community Food Bank.
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, Raymond James committed $1.5 million to charitable organizations delivering essential services in communities throughout the nation. Among them, Raymond James provided funds to Feeding America, a national food security charity, and a number of smaller organizations serving the communities that host its corporate offices. Anticipating that many communities would feel the burden of the pandemic for months to come, a portion of the funds were reserved for future relief. Through April and May, as the number of people affected by COVID-19 continued to grow, the firm and its executives contributed additional funds in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom for a combined total of more than $2.3 million.
In October, Raymond James allocated the funds remaining from our initial commitment to communities where we have a regional presence. The health of people and the impact on local providers guided our decision to support healthcare agencies.
“Our commitment to the communities in which we live and work is unwavering, especially when people and the organizations they rely on for healthcare and basic needs have been so deeply impacted by COVID-19,” Chairman and CEO Paul Reilly said.
The local contributions will support the following organizations and others:
- Grady Health Foundation
- Loretto Hospital
- Denver Health Foundation
- Houston Methodist Hospital Foundation
- Meridian Health Services
- Cedars Sinai
- MIFA Plus-1 Program
- Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation
