Richard Schaefer receives RBC Global Citizen Award

Richard Schaefer has been named a recipient of the 2017 RBC Global Citizen Award, which celebrates RBC colleagues who are leaders in their community, who personify RBC’s Collective Ambition, and who are active volunteers both inside and outside of the firm. Richard is the only RBC Wealth Management-U.S. colleague to receive the honor; he joins 34 other RBC colleagues from Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean in receiving the recognition. All of the award recipients will participate in a volunteer trip to Kenya in October. 

Richard was nominated for the award by Tucson Financial Advisor Linda Immerman-Stoffers, who wrote that Richard’s “passion and devotion for improving the lives of children in his community and the world is unparalleled.” Linda cited Richard’s involvement with eight different non-profit boards and two public agency commissions as examples of his dedication to improving his community. 

Among Richard’s many achievements, he co-founded Tucson’s Father’s Day Council, which recognizes outstanding fathers in the Tucson community and in more than 20 years has raised $5.5 million to support Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes research; he serves on the board of Job Path, which provides support and funds to people who want to attend college but don’t have the resources to do so; he serves as board president of St. Augustin High School, where he’s helped the school establish a 100 percent graduation rate and a strong dedication to its students; and much more. 

Richard says he’s excited to meet the other Global Citizen Award recipients later this fall and embark together on the volunteer trip to Kenya.  “I think it’s so great that we’re coming from all different parts of the RBC enterprise, and we’re all so like-minded in our commitment to our community,” he said. “I’ve never been to Africa, and I’ve never done anything like this before. It’s really stepping out of the box for me.”  Read more about the 2017 Global Citizen Award expedition.

Schaefer Present & Stoffers Investment Group is proud to be a supporter of the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation for Monterey County for several years. Most recently, we were a key sponsor at the 11th annual Women’s Fund Lunch, raising funds to improve the lives of women and girls in Monterey County, specifically focusing on two grant priorities. The Girls’ Health in Girls’ Hands is a program that was created in 2009 as a girl-led action research project to identify health information, support and services needed by pre-teen and teen girls in Monterey County. The second grant is for the Advancing Women’s Economic Security program, which helps low-income women in Monterey County, especially those caring for children, gain access to the education, training, and support services they need to secure increased wages and jobs with advancement potential.
