Washington, DC – The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR), along with 20 of its member financial services companies will be honored tomorrow by Junior Achievement USA® (JA) with the 2013-2014 U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Awards.

The organizations receiving the awards provided Junior Achievement with significant volunteer resources during the 2013-14 school year. The awards will be presented at a gala dinner on Thursday, March 10 in New York City.

FSR and the 20 member companies are receiving the award for providing as much as 5,000 to more than 15,000 volunteer hours to local Junior Achievement offices during the year. FSR member companies that will be recognized include Bank of America, Capital One, Citi, US Bancorp, Wells Fargo, Regions Bank, AXA Group, BBVA Compass, Caterpillar, Inc., Deere & Company, Fifth Third Bank, JP Morgan Chase, MasterCard Worldwide, MUFG Union Bank, PNC Financial Services Group, Prudential Financial Inc., State Farm, SunTrust Banks Inc., TD Ameritrade – TD Bank and Voya.

“Mentoring young people through Junior Achievement is an important piece of the Corporate Social Responsibility work that FSR and its member companies do all year long,” said FSR Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility Judy Chapa. “Teaching students how to manage their money, succeed in the workforce or start a business that helps our economy grow is critical to the future of our communities and our nation.”

President George W. Bush established the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
