JAMES L. RHODEN, JR. VISIONARY PHILANTHROPIST AWARD
Jim Rhoden has been one of Cobb County’s most impactful Visionary Philanthropists for many years. With his belief in, and dedication to, the importance of “paying your civic rent,” Jim has worked tirelessly to establish and build support for Cobb Community Foundation, and he, his family, and his company, Futren Hospitality, have also been major donors and committed volunteers for a broad range of Cobb’s non-profit organizations.
This award was created by the Board of Cobb Community Foundation in conjunction with its 10thanniversary in December 1993, to honor founder, Jim Rhoden. The award is voted on annually by the Board to recognize and honor a Cobb business and community leader who makes significant contributions to our community through their gifts of time, talent and treasure.
