Founded in 2007, the Blackstone Charitable Foundation creates programs that enhance entrepreneurial ecosystems. By leveraging the resources and intellectual capital of Blackstone, we empower entrepreneurs, create an environment where careers can flourish and support the communities in which we live and work.

Our Entrepreneurship Initiative

In 2010, the Foundation announced its Entrepreneurship Initiative, a global commitment to advance entrepreneurship and all the benefits that it brings. Through our signature programs, we aim to strengthen inclusive, equitable entrepreneurial ecosystems that are both locally customized and globally connected. Our goal is to recognize talent, offer unlimited growth opportunities and reward hard work.

Supporting Communities

At Blackstone, we have a proud tradition of serving our communities. Through the Blackstone Connects program and targeted grantmaking, the Foundation supports organizations dedicated to improving the lives and livelihoods of our fellow global citizens.
