Scott Hudgens, a World War II veteran who lived and worked in Gwinnett County, Georgia, supported many local charities during his lifetime. It was his wish that this support continue after his death through a foundation that would focus its efforts primarily on the continuing and evolving needs of the Gwinnett County community, and secondarily on the metropolitan Atlanta community and the state of Georgia.
Though Mr. Hudgens supported numerous worthy causes during his lifetime, some community needs were especially important to him. To that end, the Scott Hudgens Family Foundation will seek to fund worthy public charities within its geographic focus with missions related to:
Improving the lives of individuals who through physical, mental or socio-economic disadvantages are unable to help themselves, including:
- Services for the developmentally handicapped
- Services for homeless individuals and families
- Services for veterans
- Hospice care and services for the elderly
- Alcoholism and substance abuse
Promoting self-sufficiency through:
- Educational programs and projects, including technical training programs
Community development projects impacting the areas of:
- Health Care
- The Arts
Whenever practical, the foundation will consider capital campaign contributions in order to enhance the long-term impact of grant making. For information on grant request procedures, please refer to the foundation's website: hudgensfoundation.org
