Formed in 1995, the Blank Foundation has invested more than $800 million in early childhood development, education, green space, community transformation, and the arts, and leads giving programs for each of the Blank Family of Businesses, including the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, PGA TOUR Superstore, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, West Creek Ranch and Paradise Valley Ranch. In 2014, the Foundation created the Westside Neighborhood Prosperity Fund, a $30 million long-term commitment to invest in catalytic projects to ignite positive change and transform both people and place in Atlanta’s Westside communities. To date, nearly $50 million has been distributed to projects focused on housing, educational opportunity, crime and safety, health, and civic empowerment.
Through the establishment of The Molly Blank Fund to honor the giving heart of our Chairman’s late mother, an additional $32 million has been distributed to issues and causes she cared about including at-risk youth, arts and culture, and Jewish causes emphasizing social justice and interfaith coalitions.
Molly Blank believed to her core in the importance of giving back and that value was instilled in both our Chairman and his brother, Michael, and each of their children. It is in her spirit that the Blank Family Foundation oversees the funding for The Molly Blank Fund.
