Future Foundation Atlanta

Archives: November 2018

This fall TechBridge honored Future Foundation CEO Qaadirah Abdur-Rahim as the inaugural recipient of its Bill Bolling Nonprofit Leader Award. The award celebrates people who exercise original thinking and use the benefits of technology to address problems in our society.

“Qaadirah is recognized for her authenticity, innovation, and effectiveness as a servant leader,” said James Franklin, CEO of TechBridge. “Her collaborative approach as CEO of Future Foundation really unlocks purpose and ingenuity in those around her, resulting in higher performing fulfilled employees and more engaged volunteers.”

Having grown Future Foundation from a two-person team serving a dozen students, Abdur-Rahim has expanded the nonprofit’s work through the years to serve more than 11,000 students. She’s currently working with TechBridge and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, among others to empower youth beyond Atlanta to the rest of the state and the nation.

“I feel honored to have our efforts at the Future Foundation recognized by an award named for the fantastic work that Bill did for the Atlanta Community Food Bank and others,” said Abdur-Rahim. “It’s vital that we continue to help our youth recognize their potential and thrive in the face of challenges, so they can realize their dreams and create a brighter future for us all.”




For 14 consecutive years, 100% of Future Foundation program participants have graduated from high school and attended post-secondary institutions. On March 20, 2019, Future Foundation will celebrate Atlanta’s past, present, and future investments in education for resilient youth at its Keep It 100% luncheon.

Led by a host committee of Atlanta’s business and civic leaders, this signature fundraising event invites the metro Atlanta community to become 100% Circle Investors with the goal of raising $300,000 for Future Foundation’s remarkable youth.

At the previous year’s Luncheon, the Jean Childs Young Individual Leadership in Education Award was presented to Rodney Bullard, Executive Director of The Chick-fil-A Foundation, and the Ann Cramer Corporate Leadership in Education Award was presented to SunTrust Bank. Future Foundation chose these distinguished awardees for their significant investments in education for metro Atlanta’s most vulnerable youth.
