Alger's Candlelight Giving Program was created with the ultimate goal of giving back to the community and those less fortunate. The Committee is comprised of employees across all areas of the Firm and is dedicated to the sole purpose of creating volunteer opportunities for firm employees and finding charities that the Firm can support.
