About the Foundation

Pinkus Happ was born on September 7, 1882, one of four children. Mr. Happ’s father was a German immigrant who settled in Sandersville, GA, where he became co-owner of a dry goods store and eventually a co-founder of a banking house. Pinkus Happ was a graduate of the University of Georgia. He was also a world traveler, visiting many countries around the globe. Mr. Happ was co-owner, along with his two brothers, of the Happ Brothers Company, a clothing manufacturing business.

The Marian and Pink Happ Fund was established by Mr. Happ out of his strong desire to support underprivileged children in the state of California. Pinkus Happ died on April 9, 1958.
