Advancing the Arts

Our Commitment

Formed in 1995, the Blank Foundation has invested more than $425 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.

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.”
