About the Foundation

The Price Gilbert, Jr. Charitable Fund was established under the will of Price Gilbert, Jr. During his lifetime, Mr. Gilbert was involved with numerous charitable organizations either as a founding member or a board director. Upon his death, he made testamentary bequests to several charitable and educational institutions. The purpose of the Price Gilbert, Jr. Charitable Fund is to “distribute to such charitable and/or educational institutions in the Atlanta area as selected by my said Trustee …” in perpetuity. Special consideration is given to the Georgia Tech Foundation and the Atlanta Speech School per the charitable intent of Mr. Gilbert.

A similarly named foundation titled the Price Gilbert, Jr., Foundation is administered by the Courts Foundation. This is a separate foundation, and inquiries may be made to it directly.
