Our Community

Our Community Involvement

The Buffalo Niagara community is very important to Tyrpak Financial.  Our firm has had its roots in this area since 1933.  Giving back to our community both time and monetary donations has always been central to our values.

In 2013-2014 Jim & Mike were each President of their respective Rotary Clubs (Buffalo & Amherst).  Presently Jim serves on a number of Rotary Committees including the Buffalo Rotary Foundation Board.  In 2015 Mike and a small group of Rotarians went off and started the Roundabout Rotary Buffalo Niagara, a Club focused on service projects.  For their service to Rotary both Jim & Mike have been awarded the Paul Harris Fellow from Rotary International.

Jim and Mike are both involved in a number of Professional Organizations in the community including: the Society of Financial Service Professionals (FSP) of which Jim was both local and national President; the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors which Jim was President of the Buffalo Chapter; Financial Planning Counselors of WNY; and Jim is also incoming Executive Committee Member of Estate Analysts of WNY.

Mike is presently the Vice President of the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village (formerly the Amherst Museum) where he has been on the Board of Directors and various committees for several years.
