Branch President

Linus Foundation logoJames Hicks is in his first year as Atlanta Branch President. A native of Atlanta, he graduated in 2008 from the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia with a degree in Economics.


The Atlanta Branch of the Linus Foundation is a group of well-connected young professionals that host fun and innovative fundraisers, then donate proceeds to Atlanta children's charities who need it most. Locally, we have a strong partnership with the Atlanta Children's Shelter, among others. We have also become active volunteers for ACS annual events, such as the Holiday House, fun runs and community service projects. We raised a total of over $16,000 in 2011, $11,000 in 2012 and we are setting our sights on $20,000 in 2013!
