Cleary Gull Advisors, together with our current and previous affiliated firms, is deeply invested in the success of the community. We dedicate significant resources to promoting different programs throughout the greater Milwaukee area and beyond. Through various efforts, we provide business expertise, financial assistance and employee volunteers to help support our local community year round.

Below are a few of the causes and programs that have received support:

Make a Difference Wisconsin

A non-profit agency with a mission to provide financial literacy programs and resources that empower students to make sound financial decisions. Cleary Gull’s sponsorship has helped raise significant funds in order to provide these programs and resources for students to take control of their financial future.

St. Francis Children’s Center

A non-profit, non-sectarian organization that serves children from birth through 18 years of age by helping enhance their development, overcoming their challenges and maximizing their early education experiences. Along with our financial support for this organization, in 2013, we competed in a social media voting contest to be named the Future 50 Most Social Company in order to raise awareness for St. Francis Children’s Center.

United Way

A support organization for individuals and families worldwide to help them achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives. The firm makes an annual donation in addition to the contributions of employees to assist the United Way in achieving its fundraising goal.

U.S. Armed Forces

To support our U.S. Armed Forces, Cleary Gull employees conducted drives to send care packages to active troops all over the world. Cleary Gull was presented with the Patriot Award in 2011 by the Wisconsin Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. This agency of the Department of Defense was established to recognize outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to those who have answered their nation’s call to serve.

COA Youth & Family Centers

COA Youth & Family Centers help Milwaukee children, teens, and families reach their greatest potential through a continuum of educational, recreational, and social work programs offered through its urban community centers and rural camp facility. As a multicultural agency, COA values diversity and cooperation, and promotes growth and positive social interaction. Cleary Gull has supported COA financially and by serving on their board and committees.

FOX6 Coats for Kids

FOX6 sponsors a winter coat drive for families in the greater Milwaukee area. Cleary Gull Advisors participates in Johnson Financial Group’s annual drive. Combined efforts yielded nearly 2,000 coats in 2017.

Community Service Day

Each spring, Cleary Gull Advisors participates in a service day organized by Johnson Financial Group that encourages employees to volunteer for various organizations in the communities in which they live and work. In 2017, more than 900 Johnson Financial Group employees volunteered their time and efforts to benefit nearly 70 organizations in Wisconsin and Arizona.
