About Chuck Donalies, CFP®

I founded Donalies Financial Planning, LLC with the goal of providing affordable fee-only financial planning services to anyone in need – not just people with millions of dollars. Working for clients with a wide variety of ages, income levels, and family situations has helped me build an extensive knowledge base.

When I’m not doing financial planning you can find me chasing after my children, at my local CrossFit box, or creating artwork inspired by old-school video games.
