At Carson, giving back is part of our core.

Part of helping advisors, clients and stakeholder find their freedom is empowering them to live out their personal missions to positively impact the world.

Changing the industry for the better

FinServ Foundation

FinServ Foundation

Carson’s nonprofit partner is committed to empowering the next generation of financial professionals. FinServ Foundation provides coaching, mentorship and internship opportunities for students from 15+ financial planning programs all over the country. Carson is the establishing partner of this foundation, which is now led by Jamie Hopkins, Managing Partner of Carson Wealth, Aaron Schaben, President, and Kelsey Ruwe, Chief of Staff.

Rock the Street Wall Street

Rock the Street Wall Street is an organization committed to bringing more women into the financial services industry by cultivating an interest in finance at the high-school level, before girls choose their majors. Beyond just donating to the organization, many of Carson’s female executives regularly teach on financial services careers at local high schools. This effort is spearheaded by Senior Vice President, Financial Planning & Advanced Solutions Erin Wood.


State of Women in Wealth Management

Starting in 2022, Carson commissioned a study of the experiences of female financial advisors, firm owners and operations teams to better understand the barriers that contribute the underrepresentation of women in the field. The goal is to track changes in these experiences over time, as well as to form problem-solving communities to implement solutions at Carson and beyond.

Individually, we believe in the ability to drive local change. Collectively, we believe we have the power to transform our industry and the rest of the world.
