"He who wishes to secure the good of others, has already secured his own.” 


At Financial Principles, we not only strive to make a difference in the lives of our clients, but in our communities as well.  Giving back is a part of our culture at Financial Principles.  In addition to the financial support that our team gives to charitable organizations, our team members donate a great deal of time to local causes.  Below is a diary of some of our most recent time spent volunteering on service projects.

March 2019

Through his volunteer work as the grants coordinator for the Hackensack Elks, Steve is able to organize a few shipments each year to deployed servicemen and women around the globe.  This month a special shipment of cigars, toiletries, and other morale boosting goodies was sent out through Adopt a Soldier Platoon to a special forces unit in AFG that unfortunately lost two members recently.
