Daniel Tidwell of Morgan Stanley honored for contributions to DFRC

July 15, 2014

Daniel Tidwell, a volunteer for the Delaware Foundation Reaching Citizens with intellectual disABILITIES in Delaware, received an honorable mention for philanthropic excellence in the eighth annual Invest in Others Community Leadership Awards.

The Invest in Others Charitable Foundation established the Community Leadership Awards to support the philanthropic and volunteer activities of financial advisors. Financial advisors from across the nation are nominated by their peers for exemplifying outstanding leadership qualities in the industry and actively volunteering to improve their communities and make a difference in the lives of others.

Hundreds of nominations for the Community Leadership Awards are received each year and reviewed by a diverse panel of leaders in the financial services industry. This year’s applicant pool was particularly strong. Those receiving Honorable Mentions were selected based on their level of involvement, contributions, and the impact of their efforts.

Under Tidwell’s 25 years of leadership, the first DFRC Blue-Gold Sussex Auction was started nine years ago. Not only does the foundation raise funding though this event as well as golf outings, it also strives to raise awareness in the belief that each life comes into the world with ability. Tidwell’s work has impacted thousands of others.  He has worked tirelessly and has been instrumental in raising more than $350,000 to support the mission of the organization.

The annual Invest in Others Community Leadership Awards dinner will be held Thursday, Sept. 18, in New York City, where the following awards will be presented: Catalyst Award, Community Service Award, Global Community Impact Award, Volunteer of the Year Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award.

Established in 2006, the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation is a registered 501c3 charity founded with the mission of encouraging, recognizing, and supporting the philanthropic and volunteer activities of financial advisors in their communities.  As mentors, volunteers, fundraisers and leaders, financial professionals lend their unique skills and perspectives to the challenges and opportunities facing others in communities around the country and around the world.
