Roger A. Hubley, a resident of Anoka County with a business office in Coon Rapids for over 40 years, secured a $5,000 grant from the MDRT Foundation on behalf of Camp Knutson.
Hubley, a chartered life underwriter (CLU) and chartered financial consultant (ChFC), is a 37-year MDRT member and an active supporter of Camp Knutson.
The MDRT Foundation grant will support the organization’s recreational camp program for children with special needs, including autism, heart and skin disorders, Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities.
This year, the MDRT Foundation will award more than $850,000 in grants to more than 100 charities.
Representing the MDRT Foundation, Hubley presented the grant to Camp Knutson July 21 at Camp Knutson’s “Dinner Under the Stars” event.
Hubley surprised the audience by adding an additional $1,000 grant from the Cara’Bout Fund, he said.
The Cara’Bout Fund is a charitable fund established in memory of his daughter, Cara, who died in 2002, according to Hubley.
The MDRT Foundation was created in 1959 to provide MDRT members with a means to give back to their communities. Since its inception, the foundation has donated more than $27 million in more than 67 countries throughout the world and in all 50 U.S. states. The majority of these funds were raised by MDRT members from MDRT members.
The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Million Dollar Round Table, the premier association of financial professionals.
MDRT is an international, independent association of nearly 36,000 of the world’s life insurance and financial services professionals from more than 78 countries. Membership is recognized internationally as the standard of sales excellence in the life insurance and financial services business.
