Beachwood Financial Advisor Earns National Recognition for Philanthropy

Newton, MA – July 16, 2018 – Stephen Rudolph, President of HW Financial Advisors in Beachwood, OH has been named one of three national finalists for the Volunteer of the Year Award, as part of the 12th annual Invest in Others Awards. Rudolph is being honored for his work with Milestones Autism Resources, which will receive a $5,000 donation from the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation.

Motivated by his two nephews’ struggles with autism, Steve Rudolph joined the Board of Directors at Milestones Autism Resources in 2011. As Head of the Annual Fund at Milestones, Steve works to cultivate donors and make the annual fund a key part of the organization’s revenue model. His efforts have been successful and witnessed a 300% growth in the annual fund over the past four years.

The Invest in Others Awards program recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world. Advisors are nominated by their peers for actively giving back to non-profits to improve their communities and make a difference in the lives of others.

Invest in Others received hundreds of nominations this year. Individual finalists were selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a non-profit and the community it serves.

Awards will be presented at the 12th annual Invest in Others Awards Gala, on September 27th in Boston. If Rudolph wins his category, the donation to Milestones will increase to $25,000.
