Commissioners Recognize Jim Pedranti

At their December 1, 2021 Meeting, the Commissioners recognized dedicated community leader, Jim Pedranti, for his commitment to Pike County.

Jim Pedranti was among a group of dedicated community leaders who identified the need to create a Greater Pike Community Foundation in order to enable generous donors to maximize their charitable support through organized, targeted community philanthropy and create a permanent and personal way to give back to the region we love.

Pedranti took a leadership role in conceiving of and establishing the foundation. Under his leadership, the Foundation’s endowment has grown to over $4,000,000 and includes more than two dozen funds that distribute much needed support to local not-for-profits, students and educational institutions. Since 2013, the Foundation has distributed more than $1,000,000 in grants to local not-for-profits.

The Pike County Commissioners thank Jim for his dedication to establishing a legacy of philanthropy that positively impacts Pike County today and for generations to come.
