The DeBartolo Family Foundation’s philanthropic efforts are driven by the members of the DeBartolo family and rooted in the strong family values that have helped them not just find success in business but leave a lasting impact on communities and the people within them. They work diligently to actively support the Foundation on a daily basis and contribute to philanthropic causes around the United States.
Lisa DeBartolo leads the DeBartolo Family Foundation as its Chief Executive Officer. Family is everything to Lisa, and not just her husband Don, sons Milo and Jasper, and their two dogs, but also her extended family – the Tampa Bay community she calls home. Her efforts to strengthen the community and create a meaningful impact in the lives of the area’s most underserved populations have been a personal and lifelong passion. Decades of philanthropic experience supporting grassroots efforts and spanning work with the DeBartolo Family Foundation, the San Francisco 49ers, PETA, the Boys & Girls Club, and many other organizations, have continually reinforced her desire to ensure that our local families, children, veterans, and animals are valued and cared for with the utmost compassion. Lisa’s continued support for others extends from her family to the Tampa Bay community, and she looks forward to putting it into action every day. To Lisa DeBartolo, no kind gesture is too small, because our collective efforts can turn small acts of kindness into community changing impact.
