A note from the founder
I created the GPD Charitable Trust in December 2010 to make a difference. Our motto is “Change the Arc of History…..Just a Little,” recognizing both the hope and the reality of charitable endeavors. My intent is to honor those who helped create the wealth from which the Trust was derived by investing in programs and organizations that improve the world.
