WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport's Lee Rawiszer has started a new client "give back" charity program to benefit autism and students in need.
Westport's Paradigm Financial Partners, formerly Halper-Rawiszer Financial Group, recently announced the new program to benefit Pencils of Promise and Autism Speaks.
Paradigm Financial Partners is a financial and wealth management company. As part of the new program, it has committed to donate to each charity on behalf of its longstanding clients annually on their birthday - "a unique way to thank their clients and at the same time, contribute to worthwhile causes that impact the community," said a press release.
“We have supported these charities for many years and we were looking for a creative way to thank our clients outside of the traditional ‘wine and dine’ approach,” said Rawiszer, managing principal of Paradigm Financial Partners. “By creating this give back program, we proudly established a commitment to support these incredible charities while recognizing our clients who are so valuable to us. It’s an honor to lead a Firm that’s committed to more than just business—our charity program is a win-win for everyone."
The Paradigm Financial team decided to "take a creative approach as part of a way to pay homage to the charities closest to the Firm’s heart," Rawiszer said.
Rawiszer said he is passionate about enabling education for those who would otherwise not have access.
"He is inspired by the organization’s founder, Adam Braun, who has garnered accolades for his contributions to change the world. His book 'The Promise of a Pencil' debuted at No. 2 on the New York Times Bestseller list," according to the press release.
“Now with a prevalence rate of one in 68 children who are being diagnosed, autism remains a major concern in this country, and one that our Firm feels very passionate about,” Rawiszer said. “We feel we can make a difference by putting our organization’s resources behind them—not only by financial support but also by increasing awareness of what they do and how they help others."
