Empowering community service

At LPL Financial, our employees and financial professionals actively work to better our local communities through volunteering with local nonprofits, and matching employee and advisor donations to eligible charities.

LPL Financial Foundation

The LPL Financial Foundation funds organizations that align with our focus areas, which include increasing the pipeline of underserved career-ready talent for the financial services industry and building the financial capabilities of underserved small business owners.  Grant requests are received by invitation only, and the Foundation Board reviews the requests once a year.

Matching Gifts Program

To amplify the impact of our employees’ and financial professionals’ charitable donations, we match their contributions of up to $500 to eligible nonprofit organizations.


Volunteer Time Off (VTO)

Employees at LPL Financial are encouraged to take up to 16 hours of paid volunteer time off (VTO) each year to get involved in their communities. They can participate in the activities of their choice, whether for LPL-organized events or independent volunteer efforts.

Community engagement

LPL’s employees and financial professionals are dedicated to strengthening the communities where we live and work. We are proud to support their efforts by offering programs and opportunities to deepen their impact.

LPL Care Fund

This care fund was created to enable LPL employees to support their teammates who are facing financial hardship as a result of a natural disaster.



"We are committed to caring — for our financial professionals and for our communities. The caring power of our financial professionals and employees can be seen every day."
