In the Community

At Bradshaw Financial Planning we not only care about our clients, but we are committed to community involvement. We feel it is our responsibility to make a positive impact in the communities we serve whether it’s through financial resources or volunteering time. There are several local charities that we donate both time and money to, however there are two, that for personal reasons, we focus on year after year, Meal on Wheels Rowan, and Main Street Mission.


Meals on Wheels is more than just a meal. We believe everyone should have an opportunity for a hot meal. Not only do we make a donation annually during the Christmas season, but all employees volunteer also once a month to deliver meals to homes around the county.


Main Street Mission is more than a local food bank. They help unite the Rowan community by assisting individuals to get back on their feet with education, food, and clothing. Each November, Bradshaw Financial Planning hosts a food drive funded by our clients to help replenish the organization’s food supply.


We are also huge advocate for client privacy and believe our community should be given the opportunity to properly shred their private information in s secure environment. Due to this, we host an Annual Shred Day Evet that allows the entire community to come out and partake in shredding their sensitive documents. Sign up for our email list or follow us on social media to stay posted on when this event will be held this year.


We have also have the privilege of supporting several other local charities over the years either directly or through our clients! Some of them include:
