“The problem is that the system is tilted – the wealth bias is real. After generations of excluding minorities from our institutions, customs, and norms, now have a moral and financial responsibility to right these wrongs. Our mission is to address these issues head on and to create real opportunities within the our community. Addressing inequities in housing – education – job training as well as providing substance abuse services and to bring opportunities with long-term solutions to our communities.” – Eric Hadar

About The Eric D. Hadar Family Foundation
Eric Hadar has lived and worked in New York for over 25 years. After co-founding Allied Partners a private held, New York based real estate company in 1994, he and his two children have devoted enormous personal time and resources, both directly and through The Eric D. Hadar Family Foundation founded in 2014, to supporting inner city minority families in need with the essential programs, services and support needed to lead independent, productive and healthy lives.
Hadar has always prioritized the importance to his children of supporting the local community through dedicating their time and the Foundation’s resources to enriching New York’s racial diversity through creating access to opportunities to improve the living standards of inner city minority families in need of long-term resources and support. The Foundation works to identify those organizations, facilities and research that collectively form the most progressive and effective tools for addressing the systemic institutions that perpetuate the marginalization of ethnic groups, racism and general inequality plaguing many members of the community. “Successful, independent lives and equal access to quality health care, education and essential services must be made available to all members of any healthy community.” Eric’s work through the Foundation is constantly working to bridge the winding opportunity gap fueled by systemic racism. The Foundation providing the critical resources needed to break the cycle of dependence, provides families the basic tools needed to sustain independence and lead healthy, productive, and successful lives.

The goal of the initiative includes enabling parents to work through providing free child-care, academic support including individual and group tutoring, tennis lessons and family activities. The center also partnered with the New York City public school system to provide 6,000 hours of free tennis, academic tutoring, year-round educational, health and wellness programs providing a safe and nurturing environment for inner-city children of working parents.
- The Foundation constantly seeks to support progressive and effective initiatives that aim to battle the widening wealth and opportunity gap, battle systemic racism and ensuring that members of the community are provided equal opportunities that have been previously unavailable.
Over the past few years, Eric has spent increasing amounts of time in Miami, joining a large portion of his family who have resided there since the 1970’s. Over the past few years, Eric has become extremely involved in new business initiatives in both Miami and Miami Beach, where Allied Partners recently opened an office. His son looks forward to attending college in Florida this fall.
At the same time, the Foundation has been actively seeking to support public and private partnerships to help address the need for accessible education, as well as the other challenges posed by the City’s enormous growth.
