Philanthropist and Financial Advisor Gets National Recognition + Funding for Revere Schools… | Your money

AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jason DiLauro, managing partner, branch manager of the Wealth Advisory Group of DiLauro Wracher & Thomas in Akron, OH, and founder of the Revere Schools Foundation, is one of three national finalists for the Community Service Award at the 16th Annual Invest in Others Awards for philanthropic contributions to the Revere Schools Foundation.

The Invest in Others Awards program recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors in communities across the country and around the world. Each finalist, including DiLauro, will receive $25,000 for their nonprofit, which will increase from $50,000 to $75,000 if selected as the category winner.

“In 2013, after the Sandy Hook shootings, I was taking my third-grade daughter to school,” DiLauro shares. “I noticed many adults in the hallways and asked leaders about school safety, protocols and most importantly how we keep our children safe. Teachers simply cannot teach and children can’t learn if they don’t feel safe.”

After digging into the tax allowance and funding for Ohio-regulated schools, as well as the outdated security at his daughter’s school, DiLauro knew that if anything was going to change, funds would have to be raised to make it happen – and that is exactly what he did.

The Revere School Foundation was founded a few months later, with the first three fundraisers taking place at DiLauro’s home. He found like-minded parents, friends and community members who supported his beliefs to focus on the safety and security of children.

“At the start of the program, we funded scholarships, security cameras, communication systems and grants for our teachers,” DiLauro said. “Now, nearly 10 years later, thanks to the outpouring of community support, we have been able to grow while remaining true to our mission to protect the mental and physical safety of our students. New programs have been added such as the police support to each school for two hours in the morning and afternoon, as well as funding for events focused on mental health and well-being in schools, such as the integration of See Something Say Something. vital sensitizes and alerts students to their environment and to their friends who may have personal difficulties or private problems.”

Additionally, the team now promotes experiential learning opportunities with internship programs that connect local businesses and universities to the Foundation, as well as funding sensory programs for abused and neglected children, through a partnership with local equine therapy organizations.

DiLauro and his team are committed to supporting School Resource Officer (SRO) Scott Dressler, who won Resource Officer of the Year in 2021. One of the board’s new goals is to earn a second full-time agent to assist Scott with assisting counsellors, interventionists, and doing his day-to-day operations.

There are five award categories: Catalyst, Community Service, Emerging Impact, Lifetime Achievement and Volunteer of the Year. Finalists are selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a nonprofit organization and the community it serves.

DiLauro will travel to Boston, MA on September 29, 2022, where the winners of the Invest in Others awards will be announced.
