“Working with the GFC team has been an amazing and uplifting experience. The entire GFC team has adopted the Boys & Girls Club. They have worked tirelessly on our behalf and have generated income for the Club and the children we serve. Starting with Marian and Chuck and ending with the entire team, we cannot thank them enough for their support, service, time and efforts.”

Bernadette A. Shanahan, Executive Director


“I would like to laud Chuck Grimley and his company, Grimley Financial.  Mr. Grimley led our annual Justice for All Dinner for four years.  He is a leader of passion and zeal.  Catholic Charities and the poor we serve benefited from Chuck's great leadership in two ways: First, there was the wonderful material benefit of $500,000 which was raised under Chuck's leadership.  Those funds were and are used for direct assistance to poor and vulnerable people.  Secondly, Chuck led the Event at a critical time after the Dinner had been underway for just two years.  Chuck took the Dinner and the planning and execution to a different level.  As we look ahead to our ninth and tenth years in 2012 and 2013 there is no doubt that Chuck's skills and leadership are why we are and will be in a position to celebrate years 9 and 10!

Mr. Grimley and his team are great professionals and I have experienced their care for doing the job right.  I think all would benefit just as Catholic Charities has from Chuck and Grimley Financial. “

Kevin H. Hickey, Executive Director
