Involved in Atlanta-area real estate development since the early 1990s, Stephen F. Been heads Legacy Communities, LLC. Maintaining close ties to the local community, Been supports a number of nonprofit foundations and initiatives, including the Henry County YMCA Foundation, the Mayor’s Next Step Program, and the Frank Ski Kids Foundation (FSKF). His support for FSKF has totaled $750,000 over the course of several years.
The Frank Ski Kids Foundation was established by Atlanta television and radio personality Frank Ski as a way of providing youth with hands-on opportunities for personal development and achievement. The foundation’s community activities notably encompass athletics, science, technology, and the arts.
One of the most prominent FSKF events is the Frank Ski Annual Youth Bowl. Children who participate in their local parks and recreation football programs can earn a chance to play on one of the four Youth Bowl teams. Stephen F. Been and Legacy Communities have not only helped to host the event but also provided the trophies for the teams and for the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.
