Giving Back

At Mediate Financial, we believe every business has an obligation to uplift its community.

Through our valued partnerships with clients just like you, we’re fortunate enough to have a platform to give back to those around us. Whether it’s through sharing financial knowledge and insight at educational events or supporting various nonprofits and initiatives we’re passionate about, we’re steadfastly committed to community, one of our firm’s foundational pillars.

How we’ve helped

Annual Toy Drive

Every holiday season, our team members fill up shopping carts with goodies to fulfill wish lists filled out by local kids. Our clients also go above and beyond with their donations to our annual toy drive, which supports Mahoning County Children Services. Your collective generosity helps ensure hundreds of kids will wake up excited with gifts under their trees.

Stuff the Stockings

What’s Christmas morning without a stocking stuffed to the brim? Our team members and clients work together in a factory-style assembly line to fill over a hundred stockings that are delivered to the folks at Mahoning County Children Services. (Santa sends his thanks!)

Annual Food Drive

No one should go to bed on an empty stomach. Our food drive, held every summer and supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Mahoning Valley, reflects that aim. In the four years since its inception, this initiative has raised nearly 2,000 pounds of food along with $2,340, which amounts to around 14,000 meals for those who need them most.

Succulents for Seniors

It’s important to ensure our elders don’t feel forgotten. Succulents for Seniors, one of our newest initiatives, offers clients and team members an opportunity to paint and write inspirational quotes on flowerpots that house succulents. These care packages are then hand-delivered by our staff to residents at the Windsor Nursing Home at Omni Manor.

Pinwheel Planting for National Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Month

April is National Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Month, and our team recognizes this each year by closing our offices for a few hours so we can plant pinwheels at Boardman Park. Everyone here participates in helping us raise awareness for this important issue, with over 800 pinwheels planted in the first year of this effort.

Teaching Financial Literacy to Area High Schoolers

It’s never too early to start leveling up your financial knowledge. Our team leverages its expertise to help area teens improve their financial literacy, including at a recent speaking engagement at Boardman High School. Budgeting tips, best money saving practices and the importance of compound interest were among the topics our staffers had the pleasure of covering at this event held at their high school alma mater.


Hunger is a year-round problem, so this is a year-round initiative. Each week, members of our team deliver hot meals to elderly individuals across the Youngstown area. These meals are provided by ACTION Ohio, a grassroots community organization uniting schools, faith groups and local nonprofits to work for social justice.

Veterans’ Outreach

Serving those who served our country is our greatest honor. We’ve devoted workdays to assisting our local chapter of Veterans’ Outreach, helping organize food distribution to veterans and complete pressing administrative tasks. Barbara Smith, a Veterans’ Outreach team member and Mediate Financial Services client, helped coordinate this special partnership.
