We feel our efforts should extend beyond our clients and into our communities. By supporting charities through corporate donations and fundraising efforts, we are able to do so." Joe Dendy, Chief Marketing Officer

In 2017, Symmetry Financial Group contributed over $250K to charities across the country. This amount, which was raised through corporate contributions and fundraising efforts, supported important organizations such as Make-A-Wish Foundation, Brother Wolf Animal Shelter, Our Voice, Manna Food Bank, Bounty and Soul and Asheville Arts Council.
One of Symmetry Financial Group’s largest fundraising events was its Symmetry Challenge in November 2017. Participants took part in a 5K or 10K walk/race in the mountains of Western North Carolina. To participate in this event individuals had to raise a minimum of $1,000. The total raised from the Symmetry Challenge was $119,000.
In addition, Symmetry Financial Group staff members participated in The Trailblaze Challenge in May 2017. This event was hosted by Make-A-Wish and challenged participants by providing training sessions in preparation for a one day 28.3-mile hike. The company’s team raised over $28,000 for this event. As a whole, The Trailblaze Challenge helped make over 300 wishes come true for children battling life-threatening medical conditions in the community.
“We are in the business of helping people. It is a part of our core values and we strive to have this reflected in all that we do. Whether it is by providing access to the best possible life insurance solutions or helping someone prepare for the future, we protect our clients’ journeys,” said Joe Dendy, Chief Marketing Officer. “We also feel our efforts should extend beyond our clients and into our communities. By supporting charities through corporate donations and fundraising efforts, we are able to do so. This is who we are and what we believe.”
“In 2018, we hope to exceed our efforts from last year,” Dendy said. “In addition to this, we are introducing service days where our corporate staff will have the opportunity to volunteer as a team at local charities.”
