Montana: Land and Community

Our Commitment

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.

A Message from our Chairman

“Family is the most important part of my life. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that we share similar values and a commitment to affect positive change in the world. This is a true family foundation. We sit at the table as a family, we make decisions as a family, we share a calling to make a difference. In some respects our foundation defines who we are and what we stand for. My hope is that our future generations will also experience the joy of giving back to our foundation. What greater way to perpetuate our values and our love.”
