Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation CEO, Steve Jacobson, has been awarded the April 2019 Jefferson Award from Multiplying Good. An organization that through training, activation and recognition offers powerful programs to help individuals discover the potential in themselves by serving others.
Jefferson Award recipients are empowered to do more while inspiring others to action through their stories of public service.
National Jefferson Awards are given to individuals and groups in eight different categories for excellence in service at a national or international scale. Through the recognition given by the Jefferson Award, Multiplying Good seeks to elevate the good-doers and exponentially increase their acts of service.
In addition to other acts of service, one of Steve’s largest charitable pushes is Fairway Cares. Through employee referrals, Fairway provides care packages or financial assistance to those facing traumatic events such as critical illness or losing a loved one. Over the past several years, Fairway Cares has given over 1,000 care packages and $50,000 in grants.
Fairway also supports two other charitable organizations: The Fairway Foundation and The American Warrior Initiative. The former helps Fairway employees dealing with hardships; the latter donates service dogs, cars and grants to deserving U.S. veterans.
