Congratulations to Northstar President and Co-Founder Fred Taylor, who was one of three finalists for the 2019 Invest in Others Lifetime Achievement Award. The Invest in Others Awards program recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors in communities across the country and around the world. Fred was honored at a recent awards dinner in Boston for his work with the Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation, where he has served as a board member for 20 years.
Fred Taylor’s connection to the Children’s Hospital Colorado runs personal and deep – the Hospital saved his son’s life after a near fatal brain aneurism. Fred was so moved by the care and comfort his son and family received during the terrifying ordeal, he realized how vital the organization is for many families just like his own. After this experience, Fred joined the hospital foundation’s Board of Trustees and has worked to ensure that Children’s Hospital Colorado can continue to serve as a strong, viable health provider for years to come.
During his 20 years of service to the Hospital, Fred has provided guidance in a variety of roles, acting as Secretary, Treasurer, Vice-Chairman and currently, as Chairman of the Board. For 18 years, Fred also led the investment committee for the Children’s Hospital Colorado Health System. Further, Fred leads by example and supports the Hospital Foundation philanthropically by fostering significant relationships on its behalf. Fred’s gratitude towards the organization continues to this day. Thanks to his son’s care at Children’s Hospital Colorado, Fred’s son is now grown and is a father himself to a happy, healthy baby girl.
