PROFILE: Founded in 2002, the Majestic Realty Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Majestic Realty, a real estate development firm that specializes in building business and industrial parks. Active in specific areas of California, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Nevada and Pennsylvania, the foundation aims to enhance the quality of life in communities where it maintains business parks. Its priorities are youth, education, family, health and violence prevention.
The Majestic Realty Foundation pursues its education initiative through a flagship youth program, parnterships with national organizations, an employee leadership initiative and a volunteer program. Its flagship program in the areas of youth and education, the Los Angeles Youth Leadership council, provides leadership training to diverse groups of teens from several inner-city youth centers. The foundation's national nonprofit partners include the Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the YMCA. Because the foundation approaches philanthropy as "more than just writing checks," it runs an in-house "Get on Board" program, encouraging its employees to serve on boards of local nonprofits; a volunteer program that provides thousands of hours of service to schools and organizations in the areas it serves; and a program that links Majestic's clients with organizations in need.
The foundation's geographic focus is specific, and it maintains seven area planning teams that oversee regional grantmaking. These geographic areas are Greater Los Angeles, California; San Gabriel Valley, California; Inland Empire, California; Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Denver/Aurora, Colorado; Las Vegas, Nevada and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The Majestic Realty Foundation accepts letters of introduction from organizations that operate in its areas of geographic focus. Guidelines for the introductory letter are available at the foundation's webpage. General inquiries may be made via email.
