BOG #79 The Best Week Ever Helping Grieving Children w/ Aron Weingard
Play • 56 min

Today, my guest is friend and brother, Aron Weingard – a leader who strives to leave every organization in a better position than when he joined it. 


Aron has helped build Experience Camps for Grieving Children since its inception in 2009. He has served as a volunteer counselor for 13 years, developed the camper leadership program with Wiley Cerilli, and helped found the Georgia Program in 2017. Today, he is the Fundraising Chair of the Board of Directors and responsible for helping to raise nearly $3.5 million annually.


Aron began his career in Atlanta as a management consultant at KPMG where he focused on helping clients with matters of employee retention, merger integration and customer strategy. He left KPMG to be in a career where he can better impact the lives of people – and joined his mother, brother and their broader team at Weingard Wealth Management of Raymond James.  He focuses on wealth planning for individuals and families and specializes in guiding business owners with succession planning and exit strategies all across the United States.


Most recently, he was recognized by Invest in Others for his Experience Camps leadership as one of 72 Wealth Advisors out of over 300,000 who are making the biggest impact in the nonprofit industry.


In this episode, we dive into:

  • The founding story of Experience Camps
  • His first Summer in building the organization
  • Magical moments at camp
  • The impact he has had as a volunteer
  • The camper leadership program and how it is helping kids beyond camp
  • And much more…
