Cambridge Named One of Iowa’s ‘Most Giving Companies’

Recognition highlights Cambridge’s commitment to community service and philanthropy

FAIRFIELD, IA — June 27, 2024 — Cambridge, a financial solutions firm with office locations in Iowa and Arizona, has been recognized by the Grateful Giving Foundation as one of the “Most Giving Companies in Iowa.” This report highlights businesses leading the state in charitable giving, celebrating small, medium, and large organizations in Iowa that demonstrate an unwavering commitment to community service and philanthropy. Cambridge, which serves 900 associates and 3,800 financial professionals across the country, was included among organizations in the “large companies” category.

"We are pleased to include Cambridge in this inaugural list of Iowa's philanthropic leaders,” said Grateful Giving Foundation CEO, Matt Ostanik. “The company and the Cambridge Foundation have demonstrated a deep commitment to making a positive difference in their local community and across the state. Cambridge is part of a prestigious group of companies that make it a priority to give back and help others.”

Community service and giving back have been integral components of Cambridge’s mission for nearly 45 years. The firm’s Giving Back program, in conjunction with its annual conference, has raised nearly $1 million for charities and nonprofit organizations across the country, including over $70,000 in 2023 to the Center for Independent Living (CIL). The Cambridge Foundation, established as a community outreach initiative by Founder Eric Schwartz, has donated to more than 100 charitable organizations over the past two years.

Cambridge has been a key contributor to several notable projects in the Fairfield, Iowa, community such as the opening of the Cambridge Little Achievers Center, a 14,000-square-foot facility; the renovation of the Roosevelt Recreation Center, now the Cambridge SportsPlex; and the development of the Cambridge Learning Center at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. Cambridge’s Spirit of Cambridge Awards, Matching Gifts, and Dollars for Volunteers programs further illustrate the firm’s dedication to enhancing the communities it serves.
