Judy Waters retires
After serving the community for 40 years, Judy Waters has officially retired.

Randy Redner, new Executive Director, Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia, was quick to say, “I also want to say thank you to Judy Waters for the legacy she has built.

Judy has set an incredibly high bar for me to follow. I so much appreciate the solid foundation (pun intended!) she has put in place. I have always been told ‘leave it better than you found it’ and she has certainly done that.”

Judy Waters says, “It’s such a great season for Randy to step in and take the reigns. We have come through a tough few years as the economy struggled, but now the tide has turned. There are so many giving hearts in our community that truly want to give back. The Foundation works to connect people who care with causes that matter. We help people channel their giving in ways that has the greatest impact and truly changes lives”.

In honor of Judy's retirement, the Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia has established the "Judy Waters Community Fund." This fund will expand the Foundation's discretionary dollars and enable the Foundation to give with greater impact in the years to come. This is our chance to make a gift in Judy's name to say "thank you" to her for the many gifts she has given to our community. There is no better way to honor her than to enable the Foundation that she has lead with such passion to give even more.
