May Serve Days builds equity in our communities and creates a culture of belonging, purpose, and impact for our employees and advisors.

- Melissa Buchanan, senior vice president, Community Impact

Together we serve

No matter where we’re located – coast to coast – our employees and financial professionals are dedicated to improving the communities where we work and live. Whether they choose to volunteer in person, through a virtual opportunity, or create their own volunteer project, they are making a difference by supporting causes they’re passionate about.

During LPL’s annual May Serve Days, we all come together as one team on one mission to serve our communities. In May 2021, employees volunteered more than 1,700 hours of service (and their talent!) to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families in our communities and their favorite organizations. We are proud to support their efforts by offering programs and opportunities to deepen their impact.

Meaningful experiences

Each year, hundreds of LPL employees support various organizations and participate in virtual and in-person activities ranging from financial education seminars to community clean-up events to hunger-relief efforts.

“May Serve Days builds equity in our communities and creates a culture of belonging, purpose, and impact for our employees and advisors,” said Melissa Buchanan, senior vice president, Community Impact.

Three ways you can give back throughout the year

You can support your community in a number of ways. To encourage employees to take action, LPL offers employees up to 16 hours of paid volunteer time off each year.

  1. Volunteering your time is one of the most valuable and meaningful ways to give back to your community.
  2. Volunteering your talent or skills can affect the personal and professional growth of people in your community and provide them with a path to success.
  3. Making a contribution to a cause you’re passionate about. To amplify the impact of our employees’ and financial professionals’ charitable donations, LPL will match contributions of up to $500 to eligible non-profit organizations. If you’re an LPL financial advisor, learn about the Advisor Matching Gift Program.
