Firm Also Receives Two MFEA STAR Awards

October 25, 2013

Hennessy Funds today announced that it has been named the 2013 recipient of the prestigious Community Investment Award, presented by The Mutual Fund Education Alliance (MFEA), a national mutual fund industry trade association.  This award is presented annually to an asset management firm in recognition of its outstanding community service contributions such as special programs, partnerships, in-kind support of goods and services, employee volunteerism or other activities that have a positive impact on their community.

“The Community Investment Award acknowledges the outstanding philanthropic efforts of asset management companies who distinguish themselves, not only by committing their financial support, but by engaging their employees and demonstrating the best in corporate citizenship,” said MFEA Director, Kimber Lintz.  “MFEA is very pleased to present the 2013 award to Hennessy Funds for their support of nearly 150 community organizations and for their on-going sponsorship of Okizu, an organization focused on easing the burden of childhood cancer,” she added.

“I want to thank MFEA for this wonderful recognition,” said Neil Hennessy, Founder and Chairman of Hennessy Funds. “I feel very fortunate that our firm is in a position to provide financial support to many charitable organizations in our community, but it is the countless hours of volunteer time given by every single one on my employees that makes this award even more special to me,” he noted.

Hennessy Funds has also won two MFEA STAR Awards, which are presented annually for excellence in mutual fund marketing and communications. Hennessy was recognized for their website as well as for communications to Financial Advisors.
