Generosity Spotlight – Nonprofit Clients

SignatureFD’s commitment to the nonprofit community extends beyond our team’s significant volunteer efforts and financial support. We are also honored to partner with several nonprofit organizations as clients, whom we serve with the same level of care in investment management and financial planning as our individual and family clients. We are delighted to spotlight two of those client organizations here:

Cobb Community Foundation

The mission of the Cobb Community Foundation is to be a catalyst for a thriving community—mobilizing people, ideas, and resources to improve the quality of life in and around Cobb County. The Foundation manages charitable funds for local individuals, families, and for-profit and nonprofit organizations connected by their passion for making a difference in our community. Since 1993, the Foundation has served as a thought leader and convener for generous residents, clubs and businesses, providing guidance, expertise and resources to support the nonprofit community in making a difference in the areas that matter to them. Donors may utilize a variety of giving vehicles through the Cobb Community Foundation to reach their charitable giving goals, including donor-advised funds, field-of-interest funds, designated funds, and scholarship funds. The Cobb Community Foundation has worked with SignatureFD partner and wealth manager, Wade Hill, since 2020 to protect and grow its assets and those of its donors and nonprofit fund holders, helping to increase its impact.

The Foundation’s President and CEO, Shari Martin, shares, “Wade has masterfully navigated us through both good markets and bad. He is always available to our Investment Committee and staff and supports our work in the community in numerous ways.”

Dilworth Center

Charlotte’s Dilworth Center has provided treatment for alcoholism, drug addiction and associated mental health conditions for over 30 years. Founded in 1990 as a grassroots effort to provide recovery services to community members, Dilworth Center is the key to recovery for thousands in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Two years after receiving treatment, 80 percent of Dilworth patients still report sobriety. Located in the heart of Charlotte’s historic Dilworth neighborhood, Dilworth Center is housed in a large two-story home built in the early 1900s. A recent expansion and renovation ensures that the Center can provide even more critical services and reach more individuals and families in need. Specialized treatment programs are tailored to adults, young adults, adolescents, families, relapse prevention, professionals, nurses and even children with a family member in treatment. Dilworth Center’s team has over 250 years of combined experience in the field of addiction. SignatureFD wealth managers and partners Russ Cearley and Leah Maybry have worked with Dilworth Center since 2021 to help it remain financially viable and positioned for growth and success to continue serving those who have an addiction in the Charlotte community.

“All of us at Dilworth Center would like to thank Signature FD for its vision and generosity as investors in our scholarship fund since 2021. As sponsors of Dilworth Center’s only major fundraiser each fall, the Firm’s support helps provide financial assistance to those who reach out for help but cannot otherwise afford the cost of treatment. As financial limitations are the number one barrier to treatment, Dilworth Center is grateful for SignatureFD’s support to ensure those who desire recovery can find it at Dilworth Center’s doors. On behalf of our staff, Board of Directors, and the many patients and family members whose lives you have touched, we give thanks to all of you. The importance of our work, and YOUR SUPPORT, cannot be overstated.” ~Charles Odell, CEO and President, Dilworth Center
