Community Partners

Our ethos and culture at GIA is one of generosity. We love being active by serving our local community. Generosity is at the heart of Goodwin Investment Advisory and our clients.

One of the main pillars of Goodwin Investment Advisory (GIA) is having an ethos of generosity. Tim Goodwin, Founder and President, not only believes in being generous, but he sets a personal example of living generously which includes creating an organization that is abundantly generous with both it’s time and resources.

Tim Goodwin stated, “If tomorrow, your company disappeared, would it be missed? Well, if GIA disappeared, we would want to be missed. We would hope that not only our clients would notice, but that the community would notice… and miss us. Not just for the great service we provide our clients or for the great careers we offer our team members, but for the time, money, and effort we have invested into our community.” That is why Goodwin Investment Advisory’s mission is: To Lead People to Financial Peace, Independence and Generosity. It’s why being a part of GIA doesn’t just mean better financial decisions for the long run; it means being part of something big, something that is impacting lives and families for generations.
