Children are his cause - Dr. Harvey Najim
While the computer industry is the source of Harvey Najim’s fortune, children are his greatest cause.
Najim, the executive chairman of San Antonio-based Sirius Computer Solutions, launched the Harvey E. Najim Family Foundation with about $75 million in late 2006.
Since its launch, Najim’s foundation has given almost $53 million to 174 organizations in the San Antonio region. The foundation’s slogan is “making a difference in the lives of children.”
Najim’s foundation has given to a broad range of nonprofits that touch children’s lives, including Any Baby Can, Respite Care, Avance, the Children’s Bereavement Center, Roy Maas’ Youth Alternatives and Hill Country Youth Ranch, SAMMinistries and Haven for Hope.
“I originally set up the foundation to provide food, shelter, clothing medical treatment for early childhood education and for kids who have medical disabilities,” Najim said.
