SAN DIEGO, Ca – Independent Financial Group, LLC (IFG) today announced that donations totaling $32,500 will be given to three organizations as part of their ongoing commitment to local and national charities. Independent Financial Group’s 2011 Charity of the Year, the Challenged Athletes Foundation, will receive a $25,000 contribution. It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. IFG’s past charities of the year, the Mitchell Thorp Foundation, Junior Blind of America and the Susan G. Komen Foundation will each receive $2,500.
“When we started the company [Independent Financial Group] in 2003, we made a promise that that when financially possible, we would give back to our communities,” comments Scott Heising, Managing Director and Founder. He continues, “In 2006, we were able to deliver on this understanding and make our first contribution to the Choose Living Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by Jim Mclaren.”
Since 2006, IFG has donated thousands of dollars in contributions nationwide. In 2007 and 2008 alone, combined contributions to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Junior Blind of America exceeded amounts of $50,000, and they continue to be yearly recipients of contributions as part of their philanthropic vision.

that we have supported in the past.”
