In 2012 we launched the Cahill Financial Advisors Community Investment Program, which provides an opportunity for us to lend support to charitable organizations that seek to improve the quality of life in our community.
We provide funding to 501(c)(3) public charities, opportunities for employees to take time off to volunteer, and company–wide community service events.
Clients are encouraged to let us know if there is an organization that you would like us to consider for our program.

The Fourth Annual Cahill Cup brought out some serious team competition in our family!

Team Cahill joined hundreds of childhood cancer fighters and survivors, their families, and other allied community members in the fight to end childhood cancer by raising over $3,500 on behalf of CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. CureSearch is a national non-profit foundation that accelerates the search for cures for children’s cancer by driving innovation, transcending research barriers and solving the field’s most challenging problems.
“We fight every day to make treatments and cures possible for the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day. We do this in three ways:
- We accelerate the search for cures by posing essential challenges to scientists and inviting teams to overco me them with innovative research approaches.
- We transcend the barriers of a broken research system by establishing new pathways to end children’s cancer.
- We provide resources and education, so no child faces a cancer diagnosis without a fully equipped support team.”
Please join us in supporting this incredible organization.
