McGraw

Coweta Community Foundation has a new director at the helm in 2014.

Director Mike McGraw talked about the foundation he now leads at a recent meeting of White Oak Golden K Kiwanis Club.

McGraw, who took over as director in late 2013, gave the Golden K group a presentation on the current progress of the foundation and the goals for the future. Established in 1997, the Coweta County Foundation is a publicly supported 501(c3) organization that exists both to maintain the charitable intent of donors and to act as a catalyst to help focus local philanthropy on the Coweta community’s changing needs. The foundation manages individual gifts and bequests as an endowed pool of assets, distributing grants to a wide variety of organizations that enhance and support the quality of life in Coweta County. Prior to becoming the director, McGraw worked as an event planner and consultant. He has provided creative solutions to Fortune 500 companies for more that 30 years. In addition to lecturing at universities, associations and corporations, he has also facilitated team building motivational training programs.

McGraw is an author and wrote a book entitled “How Do You Spell Customer Service CASH,” which highlighted exceptional customer service.

McGraw is a resident of Newnan. He has been married for 30 years to Renee Mansour McGraw and they have three children – Erin, Lauren, and Michael. He is an active member of the community and his church. McGraw and his family have been serving and supporting non-profit organizations in Coweta County for many years.

White Oak Golden K meets weekly at Sprayberry’s on Bullsboro Drive, at 9 a.m. Thursdays . Members gather for breakfast coffee at 8:30 a.m.. For information on membership contact Mel Hayden, 770-304-0305; www.whiteoakgoldenk.org or webmaster@whiteoakgoldenk.org .
