Harvey E. Najim Family Foundation
Established in December 2006, the Harvey E. Najim Family Foundation is aimed at helping children’s charitable organizations in the greater San Antonio area. Mr. Najim used $75 million of the proceeds from an equity partnership transaction to initially create the Harvey E. Najim Family Foundation.

In July 2010, Mr. Najim added another $7 million to the foundation in honor of his 70th birthday.  In 2013, Mr. Najim added another $2 million to the foundation making the total contribution to the foundation $84 million since its inception.  He has also pledged another $125 million to the foundation within 3-5 years.
“I am fortunate to be in this position,” said Najim.“This community has provided so much for my company, my family, and me. I am excited about being able to give back. Awarding grants to non-profit organizations focused on children is my way of personally contributing to the future of San Antonio. I am hopeful that my foundation will help make a difference in the lives of children and increase the quality of life in our community.”
Recipients of funds will include 501 (c) (3) public charities that advance children’s education, children’s medical treatment, and other children’s charitable purposes. Grants will be awarded by the foundation’s Selection Committee which consists of Mr. Najim, his two daughters and a Board of Directors.
“For more than thirty years, I have been focused on building and creating a successful business,” said Najim. “This foundation allows me to move from being a successful business leader to becoming a community leader focused on the needs of others.”

Since 2007, the Najim Family Foundation & Mr. Najim, personally have given out in grants & pledges approximately $65 million to close to 200 different children's charitable organizations.
