We're committed to strengthening our communities.

Waddell & Reed has consistently been a strong supporter of cultural and charitable causes in the communities it serves around the country.

Corporate and regional executives and financial advisors serve on a number of boards and contribute to a number of organizations, including chambers of commerce and other business and philanthropic causes. Among some of the national organizations we support:

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Since 2000, Waddell & Reed has raised more than $1 million for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Mid-America Chapter, helping them in their mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

The United Way

Our support of the Heart of America United Way campaign helps provide for area United Way agencies and fosters a sense of teamwork among employees.

The National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial

In 2012 Waddell & Reed marked its 75th anniversary by sponsoring a free, traveling version of the National World War I Museum. Our award-winning "Honoring Our History Tour" visited 75 Waddell & Reed communities across the country - stopping at local museums and cultural institutions to raise funds and awareness. We continue our support of the National World War I Museum today.

Operation Breakthrough

Operation Breakthrough is the largest single-site early education child care and social services facility in Missouri, serving over 450 children daily from the urban core. Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children’s families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid. Waddell & Reed employees and their families regularly volunteer their time and talents, from painting offices and therapy rooms to organizing holiday celebrations for the children.
