Randy Redner/Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia
At the Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia, everything they do centers around one purpose – improving our world through the power of philanthropy.
On a fundamental level, they do that through managing funds held in trust, donated by individuals, organizations and businesses. Most funds are donor-advised funds, similar to savings accounts. These funds are pooled for investment purposes and their income is used to make grants for a wide variety of charitable purposes.
But their goals expand far beyond managing funds. They desire to strengthen the communities they serve in Gwinnett, Northeast Georgia and beyond by providing leadership, addressing community needs, and assisting individuals and organizations with their charitable giving.

They accomplish this mission by identifying needs and resources, setting priorities, planning solutions, focusing on results, and educating and motivating the community to action.
Paige Havens/Gwinnett Cares
Gwinnett Cares is an online grassroots effort that’s spun from a large group of community stakeholders (citizens, municipalities, businesses, non-profits, schools, faith community, healthcare providers, civic clubs, etc.) to streamline communication to Gwinnett’s population of a million people about how to get and give help during COVID-19.
Their goal is to synchronize Gwinnett’s existing support services and infrastructure to effectively address real-time needs across the community. Response teams, made up of community leaders and subject matter experts, have formed in 5 key focus areas: Food Insecurity & Supplies, Homelessness & Housing, Healthcare Access, Educational Support, and Workforce Development.
