We believe that everyone has a meaningful and important role to play, and by leading with courage and compassion, we can change the world one person, one family, one community at a time.
Formed in 1995, The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation promotes innovative solutions to transform the lives of youth and their families, seeking results that move communities beyond what seems possible today.
The Foundation has historically invested in education, parks and greenspace, youth development and community redevelopment, 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.
Mr. Blank, chairman of the foundation, co-founded The Home Depot, the world’s largest home improvement retailer, in 1978 and retired from the company as co-chairman in 2001. Through the foundation and his family’s personal giving, Mr. Blank has granted more than $800 million to various charitable organizations.
As a family of businesses, we leverage and connect all our assets to drive deep, meaningful impact that aligns with our enduring commitment to a values-based approach to philanthropy and business and is grounded in people and place.
In living our values, we believe we can change the world one person, one family, one community at a time.
