LINCOLN, Nebraska (November 30, 2020) – Ameritas announced a $20,000 grant to I Am Second in Dallas, Texas on behalf of the 2020 Rosen Award recipient and Dallas resident Joe Foster, CFP, president of the wealth management division for Foster Financial Group.

The grant is part of a prestigious award Ameritas gives each year to one of the company’s independent financial representatives, someone who has achieved great professional success while maintaining a high level of commitment to community service. The Lester A. Rosen Humanitarian and Achievement Award was created in 1996 to honor Rosen’s lifetime of service to the insurance industry, to Ameritas and to his community of Memphis, Tennessee.

“It is such an honor to receive the Rosen Award,” Foster said. “This grant allows me to give back to an organization that has a lot of meaning to me.”

I Am Second is a storytelling organization presenting compelling authentic short films and written content that integrates a message of hope and faith. In a culture where most seek to be first, the “I Am Second” message is so counterculture that it has captured the attention from people of all walks of life and inspired them to find hope.

Ameritas featured the Foster family and I Am Second in a recent video.
