The Foundation for Financial Planning and Financial Planning magazine Pro Bono Awards recognize the community service work of advisers who have contributed their time and talents to helping those in need take control of their financial lives.

The Pro Bono Planner of the Year award is presented to an adviser in recognition of their significant pro bono contributions to a nonprofit or social service organization.

This year's winner is Judy Volkmann, Esq., CFP®, whose inspiring MoneyWorks program will receive a $5,000 grant from the Foundation to continue its powerful pro bono work with college students via the Borough of Manhattan Community College and in collaboration with the FPA of New York.

The Pro Bono Runner Up Award goes to the professors and students at the University of Georgia who volunteer their time offering services to people who could not otherwise afford them.




Five years ago, Judy Volkmann encouraged Thomas Chu (right) to get a CFP, join the FPA and do pro bono work. Chu, in turn, helped Haidar Jamal Baba (left) get enough financial aid to attend Columbia University. Jamal Baba was then hired by BlackRock. (Photo credit: Michael Chu)
