Central Gwinnett Cluster Foundation is a non-profit organization that meets in Gwinnett County, Georgia. We advocate for the education of our children in grades K – 12 in the public education system. We meet once a month to discuss ways that we can better advocate for our children, and we plan fundraising events to raise money to help fund the schools.
Central Gwinett Cluster Foundation was started by Gwyneth Adams and Christopher Bishop, who are both parents of children in the Gwinnett County Public School System. Gwyneth’s son has a learning disability, and in 4th grade, he wasn’t getting the help that he needed. The school was understaffed, underfunded, and underemployed.
At the same time, Christopher Bishop had a daughter in one of the high schools in Gwinnett County. She had ambitions to become an engineer, and she wasn’t being provided opportunities to help her in her field.
It was then that Gwyneth and Christopher started the foundation to help provide their own children with the best education possible. When they all got together, the foundation became a powerful source, and they began to get things accomplished in the field of education in Gwinnett County. Gwyneth and NAME realized that not only were their children being helped, but all children in the county were being helped.
