RICHMOND, Va., July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Thaler, co-founder and managing partner of Equity Concepts, has been honored for his philanthropic excellence in the tenth annual Invest in Others Community Leadership Awards.
The Invest in Others Charitable Foundation established the Community Leadership Awards to recognize the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world.
Thaler earned an honorable mention for the Global Community Impact Award, which recognizes an individual's service, and its lasting impact, to an organization whose primary mission is to help those who live outside of the United States. The recognition is evaluated based on leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration and impact.
Thaler received the honor in recognition of his work with Effective Ministries, Inc. (EMI), also known as The LINK™ (Leading Innovatively Niger to The Kingdom). The non-profit organization, founded by Thaler in July 2003, oversees partnerships and projects that meet the physical and spiritual needs of the communities it serves in Niger, Africa and Richmond, Va.
"Michael has an amazing heart for the people of Niger, Africa," said Howe Rice, a Richmond-area business owner. "He is an inspiration to many people in our community and around the world. I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award."
This is Thaler's second Honorable Mention for the Global Community Impact Award. He was previously honored in 2014.
