As we embark on 2022, overcoming obstacles, challenging the odds, and fighting for our mission, we may look a bit different to you. Our maturity, growth, staff, and operational standards have changed to fit the virtues Gwyneth Griffin would have today as a 22-year-old woman, rather than as a young girl, when our foundation was established.
When you view our logo, you may take note of a face silhouette, the Eiffel Tower, and a butterfly inside of a heart. While at first glance, there might not be much changed from our original logo to now, we want to share our changes, to help you see and understand them.
The face of Gwyneth in our logo has matured from the young girl she was, to the adult woman she would be today and to share how Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation has grown as a Foundation as well. Initially founded in 2015, we started with only a couple members on the board, three Foundation Programs, training at less than 1,000 a year, and only one employee starting in 2017. Today, we celebrate our organizational growth, with currently 14 board members, the addition of our Awareness Program, training over 3,000 individuals per year, and four employees.
Alongside our logo maturity, we have updated our Mission and Vision to be shorter and easier to identify for the public. Our website has been updated into a new design for seamless usage and appealing visual aids. We are excited to go on this journey as a continuously developing Foundation and look forward with hopefulness and pride as to what the future holds for us as we serve the community we love in advocating for a Culture of Action.
To raise awareness of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).
To create a Culture of Action where communities are educated, confident and empowered to save the lives of individuals suffering from cardiac arrest.
