The Harvey E. Najim Charitable Foundation

Building Hope for Future Generations

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 2019, The Harvey E. Najim “Family” Foundation changed it’s name and is now known as The Harvey E. Najim “Charitable” Foundation.  The word “Charitable” truly describes the nature of the foundation and Mr. Najim’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of children and those in need in San Antonio.

“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.”
