For the Fourth Consecutive Year, CrossleyShear Wealth Management Recognized as One of the Region’s Top Philanthropic Companies

HEATHROW/MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA, December 10, 2020 – CrossleyShear Wealth Management (CrossleyShear), a premier financial planning and wealth management team based in Merritt Island and Heathrow, Florida, announced today they were recognized for the fourth consecutive year on the Orlando Business Journal (OBJ) List of Top Philanthropic Companies and Organizations. The list acknowledges metro Orlando businesses with a physical presence or office in Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake Counties that deserve recognition in the community for their valuable corporate-sanctioned giving and volunteer programs.

CrossleyShear has consistently fostered a culture of social responsibility among its employees and traditionally contributes both financial support and hands-on volunteer time to benefit many local and national charities. In 2019, the company committed its efforts to providing much-needed financial support to local organizations that are personally meaningful to the team, including the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida, Tools 4 Seminole Schools and The Treatment Advocacy Center. They also provided support to several national organizations hand selected by the team including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Boys and Girls Club of America.

“This is an honor that’s extremely meaningful to our entire team because it demonstrates our commitment over the past four years to make a consistent and concerted effort to foster a deeply philanthropic corporate culture. With 2020 being such a challenging year, we’re pleased to continue making an impact,” stated Evan Shear, Co-Founder and Branch Manager of CrossleyShear Wealth Management and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. “We understand that charities are really feeling the decrease in funding due to the economic downturn from COVID-19. At the same time, charitable organizations are challenged with maintaining their level of support while meeting a dramatic increase in demand over last year. This year, more than ever, we’re proud to be able to carry on our tradition of supporting both local and national charities.”

“In addition to our team’s charitable efforts, we also get great satisfaction by helping our clients maximize their contributions to their favorite charitable organizations. Due to the recent CARES Act, we’re currently helping clients navigate the changes and determine the best way to strategize their contributions,” stated Dale Crossley, Co-Founder of CrossleyShear Wealth Management, Branch Manager and Financial Planner – RJFS. “Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) from an IRA are often earmarked as a charitable donation to help offset tax liability in the form of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). This year, however, RMDs are temporarily suspended. Clients are pleased to learn that they can still achieve their charitable goals despite the CARES Act and we’re honored to help them in the most tax efficient way possible.”
