Edelman Financial

Leading financial planning authority Ric Edelman1 and his firm, Edelman Financial Services, have generously supported the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America since 2008. As a longtime supporter, Ric has contributed to BGCA by strengthening the organization's ability to serve local clubs, communities and children.

In 2012, Ric, who serves as a national trustee for BGCA, pledged to donate a portion of proceeds from his firm’s financial planning seminars. As a result of Edelman's commitment and dedication, BGCA received a check for $53,000 last year in addition to EFS’ ongoing support. The firm has made a similar pledge this year.
