Warrick Dunn Family Foundation Announces Expansion to Atlanta
The Warrick Dunn Family Foundation (WD-FF) is pleased to announce its expansion with relocation of its headquarters to 3223 Howell Mill Road NW, Atlanta, Ga. 30327 as of January 3, 2011. The headquarters was previously located at 3413 West Fletcher Avenue, Tampa, Fla. 33618.
WD-FF’s headquarters will now be housed within the Arthur M. Blank Family Office. The family office is also home to The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and AMB Group, LLC, the investment management and support services arm of the Blank-owned businesses. The building was the first in Georgia to obtain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certified status.
“We’re very happy that the good work of the Warrick Dunn Family Foundation will take place in our family office;” said Arthur Blank, Owner & CEO of the Atlanta Falcons and Chairman of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. “Just as he did throughout his NFL football career, Warrick exemplifies the highest standards through his foundation, and he has a genuine desire to help others. We’re honored to have an organization of such high caliber in our building.”
The foundation will continue to have an office in Tampa, Fla. and operate the Homes for the Holidays program within the four markets it has served for thirteen years: Atlanta, Ga.; Baton Rouge, La.; Tallahassee and Tampa, Fla.
“Thanks to the long-standing support we have received in Tampa Bay over the years, the foundation is now in a position to expand,” said Jennifer J. Maxwell, WD-FF’s executive director. “In light of Mr. Dunn’s limited partnership of the Falcons, Atlanta was an obvious choice. We remain committed to our fans and supporters in Tampa and look forward to maintaining our presence in the Bay area.”
