I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had during my life. My parents worked hard to give me the opportunity to get a higher education. Our democratic system of government provided me with the opportunity to become a candidate and be elected to the Rhode Island Senate at the age of 20. After two decades in elected office and as I was preparing for life after politics, I felt compelled to find a way to continue giving back to have a positive and sustainable impact on society.
I shared these thoughts one day over lunch with my friend, Steve Rosa, President + CEO of (add)ventures, a successful branding and communications firm headquartered in East Providence, RI. He was kind enough to share his experience and insight, and during this lunch, AxisActs! was born.
AxisActs! is the firm’s charitable initiative where we pledge 1% of our gross revenues to support grassroots organizations that work to have positive and sustainable social impacts to make our communities and world a better place.
Our clients and financial advisors know that 1% of the fees for our services are being donated in their name to support organizations in the communities where they live, work and raise their family.
The organizations receiving support from AxisActs! will be shared on this page. We look forward to doing well by doing good and to do our part to make our world a more responsible place.
All the best,
Daniel Da Ponte, AIF®
Founder, President + CCO
