Arthur Blank puts his money where his heart is

This week, Blank’s Atlanta United added to the initial financial commitment with its ‘United We Conquer’ initiative, which will serve as a platform for the club to give back to the community, acknowledge and support those on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis and offer resources for fans and community members who would like to learn about safe volunteering opportunities. On top of the the Atlanta United Foundation will grant $85,000 to Soccer in the Streets — a grassroots organization that anyone reading this knows well — to allow it to continue operations.

While other clubs in the league are furloughing workers and focusing on the bottom line, Blank is leading in a different way.
