PROFILE: Established in 2000, the Harlan and Amy Korenvaes Family Foundation is based in Dallas, Texas. HBK Investments Founder Harlan Korenvaes and his wife Amy move their philanthropy through this foundation, which has a strong Dallas focus. The Korenvaes Foundation gave away a little under $640,000 in a recent tax year and a little more than $481,000 the year prior. Grantmaking areas of interest include health, human services, education and youth, Jewish causes, and the arts.

The foundation keeps a low profile and most of its grantmaking is ascertained through tax records. It does not have a website to guide grantseekers. In the Dallas area, Harlan Korenvaes is a director of Children’s Medical Center Foundation and the family steadily supports Children’s Medical Center via their foundation. The couple also gave a gift to support an endowment for the Funnyatrics Clown Program. Other grantees have included Southern Methodist University, Greenhill School, Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Opera.
