Community Services League is proud to partner with Stewardship Capital for the second consecutive year as the Presenting Sponsor of Ooh! Stewardship Capital and its employees are steadfast champions of philanthropy in Eastern Jackson County, and great supporters of the work we do for our neighbors in poverty.
When Ron Finke started the firm in 1997, he believed that by helping clients succeed financially, they would have greater resources – including time and money – to invest in improving the lives of others. Through the years, he has never wavered from this goal.
Not only does Stewardship Capital help its clients, but as a company they practice generosity every day by donating 10% of all management fees to local nonprofits, and by encouraging employees to volunteer!
Through the years, Stewardship Capital has partnered with dozens of agencies, and received a number of accolades for their community investment. They even dedicate a page on their website to charitable causes.
