Who We Are

Not only was the GPD Employees’ Foundation founded by employees, but it is also funded and run by them. From marketing materials and fundraising campaigns to event planning and grant selections, employees play a role in every aspect of the Foundation’s day-to-day functions. Our employees give their time and talents to ensure the Foundation continues to make a difference in the communities we are so lucky to live and work.
