"To whom much is given, much will be expected."

Luke 12:48



The Garrett Family Foundation is dedicated to relieving burdens of individuals and supporting organizations dedicated to the same cause. Our mission is to foster resilience, ignite hope, and carve pathways to success for those facing obstacles.



Eric, Rhonda, and the entire Garrett family wholeheartedly embrace the timeless wisdom of the Bible, embodying the principle that "To whom much is given, much will be expected." This foundational belief drives us forward, inspiring meaningful action and service in all that we do.

From the very beginning, Matt Griffin's role as the chief operating officer of The Garrett Companies was marked by more than mere professional duty. His partnership with Eric transcended the bounds of typical colleagues, rooted in a deep personal connection and a shared vision for the company's future.

As the company thrived, it became increasingly clear that our success was a platform to uplift those in need. The seed of the Garrett Family Foundation was planted during this time of growth, though its realization was hindered by the whirlwind pace of the company's expansion. Tragically, Matt's battle with cancer ended in 2023, leaving behind his wife Emily, their three children, and a company and family deeply mourning his loss.

In her darkest moments, Emily found solace in the unwavering support of the Garrett family and its employees. Through this challenging experience, her perspective shifted, igniting a fervent passion for aiding others. When Eric presented Emily with the opportunity to lead the Garrett Family Foundation, it became more than a mere obligation— it became a deeply personal mission to extend compassion and support to those facing similar adversities.

At the heart of both the Foundation and The Garrett Companies lies a shared commitment to impactful change. Fueled by ambitious aspirations, we seek to empower and uplift those within our communities. Through strategic initiatives and collaborative efforts, we strive to support families confronting adversity and strengthen organizations that align with our values and objectives.
