Community Involvement

At Civic, we believe education and health to be driving forces behind our clients’ success, and the success of our firm and the broader community. We are deeply involved in giving back to the educational institutions that guided us. Civic does pro bono work for teachers and gives annually to our alma maters to propel the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Our firm is deeply health-conscious as well: our partners are collegiate athletes, marathoners, and CrossFit competitors. CEO Scott DeSantis translates his love for squash to community service as a steadfast SquashBusters supporter and volunteer. SquashBusters is an after-school youth enrichment program that combines the sport of squash with academic mentoring and ongoing post-secondary support. Scott began volunteering for SquashBusters in 2009. Through SquashBusters, he has helped students recognize and meet life goals.

Civic consistently supports Alex's Lemonade Stand, a foundation that raises money for and awareness of childhood cancer research. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 years old. Since partnering with Northwestern Mutual, Alex's Lemonade Stand has raised over 5 million dollars. Civic Financial participates in events such as the annual Boston Corporate Cup and Roots and Wings 5K in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We and the Northwestern Mutual team are committed to ongoing contributions to this important cause.
