JIM EVITT SR.
In 2004, The Evitt Foundation, a 501(c)(3), was established to honor the memory and legacy of Ringgold Telephone Company founder, Jim Evitt Sr. During his lifetime, Jim Evitt Sr. was not only the local pharmacist, a Catoosa County Superior Clerk, and entrepreneur, he was an instrumental part of numerous projects that made Ringgold a better community.
Evitt consistently looked for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Today, the Evitt Foundation's mission is one which strives to keep Jim Evitt Sr.'s legacy alive. The Foundation works toward promoting child welfare and education in the Catoosa County community, as well as in underprivileged areas throughout the world.
Promoting child welfare and education is at the heart of the cause for us. We truly believe in our children’s future.
Social responsibility is essential to the development and progress of our community. The Evitt Foundation exists so that our community can grow.
The more that we can learn from each other, the stronger our community will be. Promoting education is vital for our mission.
