Serving Our Community
“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” – Oscar Wilde
When one of us wins, we all do.
We live here. We work here. This is our home. Our clients are our friends and neighbors, and we believe firmly in the value of building each other up in service of the greater good.
That’s why we are committed, not only to providing the members of this community with trusted financial guidance and sound investment strategy, but to educating them along the way. We want to create a generation of savvy investors, armed with the knowledge and insight they need to chart a strong financial future. We believe knowledge is power, and powerful people make big things happen.
We’re all in this together. Now, let’s get started.

United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley- Women United
Women United is a network of dynamic women leaders committed to engagement in the community through the works and programs of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley. The mission is to mobilize the power of women to advance the common good in our community.
Nationally, the organization was founded over a decade ago! From a handful of determined and passionate individuals, this idea has grown into a national network of some 70,000 women leaders in more than 165 communities who have raised and invested more than $1.5 billion. And, over the last 12 years, this has been one of the most successful philanthropic effort of its kind.
Women United serves our local community through many volunteer opportunities organized for members and those looking to get involved. The most significant event is the Power of the Purse Luncheon. This event is held every year in the fall. Attendees are asked to participate in the “Wear One, Bring One” collection, which highlights Women United’s service project to collect and distribute undergarments to women in need throughout our community. We have collected more than 10,000 undergarment items and funded more than 700 vouchers to purchase new undergarments. Through the success of this luncheon we started a new Scholarship Program for non-traditional female students in 2017. YTD, we have awarded $7500 in scholarship dollars and are looking to award an additional $7,500 for 2019. Through the scholarship program we have also created a Mentor/Mentee program for scholarship recipients.
Brookstone Wealth Management Founder, Tami McDonald, has been honored to serve as past Board Chair, Event Chair and current Scholarship Chair for United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley – Women United Advisory Board.
