Firm gives back to community through a new grant fund administered by the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois

Savant Capital Management, a nationally-recognized fee-only wealth management firm headquartered in Rockford, helps build ideal futures for individuals, families and organizations. This year, Savant celebrates its 30th anniversary of helping clients work toward achieving their financial goals.

Savant is proud to announce that it has been recognized as the Charles Schwab 2015 Best-in-Business IMPACT Award™ winner. As part of this recognition, Charles Schwab is providing a $15,000 contribution to nonprofit organizations chosen by Savant. Savant has matched the Schwab Charitable gift and created a $30,000 grant making fund at the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. This grant fund recognizes 12 eligible nonprofits with a $2,500 grant each month throughout 2016.

In April, RAMP was awarded the Savant grant. RAMP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting an accessible society that allows and expects full participation by people with disabilities. They empower people with disabilities to realize there is no limit to what they can do.

“We are pleased to announce RAMP as our grant recipient for the month of April,” said Brent Brodeski, CEO of Savant. “RAMP works hard every day to assist those with disabilities to live independently. We are proud to support their positive and life changing work.”

Earlier this year, Savant has also awarded $2,500 grants to the Discovery Center Museum, Rockford Symphony Orchestra and Rosecrance.

Throughout its history, Savant has supported its communities with hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising and sponsorships, donations and long-term financial pledges to a variety of educational, cultural, and other non-profit organizations.
