Community Engagement

For more than four decades, DeMarche has helped people reach secure retirements and financial outcomes through our advisory and discretionary services. We are also devoted to improving our community through civic and philanthropic engagement.

Charities Committee

Each year the DeMarche Charities Committee selects a local nonprofit that is in need of funding and volunteers. In 2019, we worked with the Veterans Community Project (VCP) to help build houses for homeless veterans. DeMarche volunteers installed ceiling insulation in 16 tiny homes and presented the VCP with a check for $1000 from our Blue Jeans Friday Fund.

The VCP is an innovative organization creating a village of 49 tiny homes where veterans live rent-free while they receive comprehensive assistance to find permanent housing and employment.
