Community Involvement

Bender Private Wealth Management Group has always been focused on teams – each client and their family as a team; our team of associates and support staff who work together diligently to meet your needs; and our team of community-oriented professionals.

Putting Our Hearts into Our Community

In many ways, we consider ourselves fortunate, and we're proud to be big proponents of giving back.

Our Scranton, PA neighbors know that Bender Private Wealth Management Group is synonymous with community. Our practice simply doesn't exist without some of the special, loyal relationships we've developed with so many local charitable foundations and causes. Being headquartered in Scranton, many of our supported organizations are throughout the eastern Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and New York areas – so there’s a good chance we have involvement with an organization you are passionate about.

Wells Fargo Gives Back

Supporting our clients and communities is at the heart of our business. It’s one of the many reasons why we chose to work with Wells Fargo Advisors, a premier financial services firms that not only allows us to maintain this charitable focus, but also believes in that focus as a mission of its own.
