Kevin Nentwich, Board Vice President

kevinnentwichKevin got involved with Embrace Richmond to have a positive impact on the local Richmond Community.  Kevin believes the most successful charities are “those with boots on the ground right where the need is.”  Kevin is the President and Senior Financial Advisor for Financial Consultants of America, a Richmond-based investment firm.  Kevin believes the best way to help someone is to “teach them to fish rather than continuously giving them fish.  As the communities learn to help themselves, the neighborhoods change, allowing for more economic growth, a lower crime rate and better schools through parental involvement.”

 

“Serving as a board member of Embrace Richmond has been a totally self-serving act on my part.  I’d love to say I have given more than I have received, but it simply wouldn’t be true.  Watching the organization grow is just a small part of it.  Seeing and hearing about the all of the children’s programs, the sports programs, the gardens, the jobs created, the small businesses, the prayer groups, knowing I have been a small part of that gives me more satisfaction than I can express.  When you help lift someone else’s spirit, your spirit rises even farther.  It’s an incredible thing to be a part of.”
