Join Us In Making A Difference

The Accel Group is grateful for our loyal customers and proud of the communities in which we do business. The Accel Foundation was created as a unique way to show our appreciation, give back, and make a long-lasting impact.

Our mission is to provide community support to organizations by offering volunteer and financial assistance to help improve the quality of life in the areas we serve.

“Be a Pebble. Join the Ripple.”

This phrase is based on the idea that the positive actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects. It is important that the The Accel Foundation be an active, supportive organization for growth and caring. Our hope is to start a positive ripple right here in eastern Iowa.

Volunteer Opportunities

We coordinate volunteer opportunities for The Accel Group and Accel Wealth Management staff to give back to the communities we live and work in. As our footprint expands, we can support causes in more areas of Iowa, such as the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City Corridor, the Cedar Valley, and the Des Moines area. Our volunteer opportunities include giving our time, talents, and financial resources to impact the lives of fellow Iowans positively.

Contact us if you have volunteer opportunities for us to share with our employees.
