MEET OUR FOUNDER

Brian Gardner, is the founder and owner of ImagIT, a Chicago based IT solution company.  Brian’s inspiration for creating the Gardner Foundation is his brother William Charles Gardner, who has autism. William has been fortunate enough to live in one of the IAG homes, but there are so many others out there that do not have that privilege.
