“We know the importance of investing in our community and we are proud to partner with Five Acres – an amazing organization that has served children and families for over 129 years!” said Alison Gamble, President of Gamble Jones Investment Counsel.
Gamble Jones was founded in 1956 to serve the investment needs of individuals, families and non-profit organizations. Managing over $1 billion in client assets, Gamble Jones Investment Counsel serves clients through a seasoned team of relationship managers, investment analysts and a Client Service Team. Gamble Jones founder, James N. Gamble, was the great grandson of David Gamble, founder of Proctor and Gamble. Jim’s vision in 1956 was to create a firm that could do more than exclusively offer portfolio management advice. He wanted the firm to be a family office that could serve as a resource for clients in the numerous areas of their finances as well.
“Partnering with Gamble Jones, a longstanding community establishment with a shared mission of serving the needs of children and families in our backyard, is a privilege for Five Acres and an opportunity with their support to expand more awareness of the critical need of keeping families safe and intact. Thank you Gamble Jones for your care and heart!” said Jennifer Berger, Five Acres Chief Advancement Officer.
