At the Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia, everything we do centers around one purpose — improving our world through the power of philanthropy.
On a fundamental level, we do that through managing funds held in trust, donated by individuals, organizations and businesses. These funds are pooled for investment purposes and their income is used to make grants for a wide variety of charitable purposes.
But our goals expand far beyond managing funds. We desire to strengthen the communities we serve by providing leadership, addressing community needs and assisting individuals and organizations with their charitable giving. As part of that, our board of directors represents the entire spectrum – from nonprofits and businesses to government and individual donors.
Additionally, our Executive Director Randy Redner sits on the board of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, the Gwinnett Coalition, the United Way, the Gwinnett Medical Foundation, Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation, Primerica Foundation and is president elect of the Duluth Rotary and a Leadership Gwinnett Study Group Leader. This community involvement is part of our commitment to ensuring we understand the issues and help bring everyone together to address them.
