Community Involvement

 A Commitment to Being Involved

H&R manages assets for several not-for-profit institutions and our investment professionals have years of experience helping investment committees and boards achieve their specific financial goals.  Our involvement includes work on behalf of veterans' affairs, healthcare and human services, religious organizations, and education institutions, some of which are national, and some of which are local to Rochester, Pittsford, and surrounding western New York areas.

We are proud that these organizations have found our experience and focus on their needs beneficial.

Many of our professionals volunteer and serve on boards and committees of various not-for-profit institutions.  Commitment to, and involvement in, our community are of utmost importance to our team. This is why beyond individual volunteering, Howe & Rusling donates money to several not-for-profits, supporting many different causes:
