In 2004, The Evitt Foundation, a 501(c)(3), was established to honor the memory and legacy of Ringgold Telephone Company founder; Jim Evitt Sr. During his lifetime, Jim Evitt Sr. was more than just the local pharmacist, a Catoosa County Superior Clerk, and entrepreneur. He was an instrumental part of numerous projects that made Ringgold a better community. Mr. Evitt looked for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Today, the Evitt Foundation’s mission is one which strives to keep Jim Evitt Sr.’s legacy alive. The Foundation works toward promoting child welfare and education in the Catoosa County community, as well as in underprivileged areas throughout the world.
