Philanthropy is an integral part of McCourt Global’s history and our future. It is embedded in the company’s culture and extends to all aspects of our business operations. Our philanthropic efforts are both diverse and ambitious, and they include support for numerous organizations and initiatives in New York, in Los Angeles, and around the world. Our flagship initiative, however, is The Future Project, an organization inspiring and mobilizing young people around the United States to build better and brighter futures for themselves, their communities, and the nation.
Through the McCourt family, MG is also associated with several academic, civic, and cultural institutions and initiatives. In 2013, Frank H. McCourt, Jr. donated $100 million to Georgetown University to create the McCourt School of Public Policy, an institution that is destined to become the pre-eminent public policy school in the world. Additionally, Mr. McCourt serves on the Board of Directors and is a major benefactor of The Shed, a new organization that is developing an innovative and architecturally significant arts and cultural center in the heart of Manhattan’s Hudson Yards.
