“For four decades, I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve, in one role or another, the place I have called home all my life.” Charlotte Nash
Charlotte Nash Community Fund
Dean Collins had an idea.
“I was sitting with some community leaders talking about Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Charlotte Nash’s retirement,” said Dean, who is founder and president of Axis Companies. “A little later, I started thinking about our conversation. What could we possibly do as a community to thank her for her leadership? When you talk to Charlotte, you quickly realize how much she loves this community.
“Suddenly, a light bulb popped on in my head. What better way to thank her than to give back to the community, and who can help us do this that is also committed to Gwinnett? The answer was obvious – The Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia. So, I called Randy and pitched the idea. The rest is history.”
When Randy Redner, president and CEO of the Community Foundation, heard the idea he knew it was a good one.
“It made complete sense to honor Charlotte by creating a fund that would honor her name in perpetuity,” Randy said. “So, working with Dean and other community leaders, the Charlotte Nash Community Fund was created here at the Community Foundation. It is an endowment fund that will, in perpetuity, provide support to charitable organizations addressing critical needs in Gwinnett County. We appreciate the privilege of making that happen here – it just makes perfect sense to honor her legacy through giving to issues she cares about.”
