OVERVIEW: The Havner Family Foundation primarily funds grantmaking related to health and human services, arts and culture, and education.
IP TAKE: The foundation keeps a low public profile, which limits information available on its grantmaking priorities and activities.
PROFILE: The Havner Family Foundation was established in 2003 by Public Storage CEO Ronald L. Havner and his wife LeeAnn Havner. The foundation lacks transparency and does not maintain a website, which makes it difficult to locate further information on its priority areas and grantmaking strategies. Tax filings suggest the Havner Family Foundation primarily funds grantmaking related to health and human services, arts and culture, and education.
The couple steadily support Muse/ique, a live music venue in Pasadena, California. LeeAnn chairs the board of directors of Muse/ique.
Grants range from $500 to $210,000. In a recent fiscal year, the foundation gave away around $735,000. Past grantees include UCLA Foundation (Ronald graduated from UCLA); LA Philharmonic; Cancer Support Community; Huntington Hospital; Casa de las Amigas; San Marino Schools Foundation; and Villa Esperanza Services, which supports the developmentally disabled.
