Notable programs

Hagan Arts Trust - A fine arts program, chaired by Chadwick Hagan, based in Roswell, Atlanta and Cromwell Place Arts Center, London. It is a long-term fine art investment program, focused on education, collecting, and collaborating with leading artists, producing multimedia projects such as books, audio, documentaries, and imagery, as well as commissioning public exhibits. The trust was instrumental in commissioning Atlanta’s Live Lab (2020) with Magnum Photos and the High Museum of Art.[2][3]

HFF Nature Trust - Chaired by a Chadwick Hagan, the trust originated in 2014, as the Rhino Action Fund, Inc. (RAFI) with the objective of supporting rhino breeding operations in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Later, with the amendments in South Africa’s legislation rule regarding the rhino horn trade, RAFI was reorganized as HFF Nature Trust. The program is now focused on increasing awareness and providing resources for the protection of native habitats, rewilding efforts for single species and the environment at large. The trust was an early supporter of the British charity Beaver Trust and apex predator rewilding.

Legacy Programs - Hagan Family Foundarion Legacy Programs are largely based around Robert (Bob) Hagan’s core philanthropy work, which includes programs focused on the development and promotion of education, sports, and family well-being. Programs include large financial gifts to the Rotary Foundation: a new basketball floor at Valdosta State University (named after Robert W. Hagan); sponsorship of the Georgia Symphony Orchestra’s musical director; facilities sponsorship at Roswell’s Child Development Authority (CDA) and The Cottage School, as well as the $150,000.00 challenge for the CDA and ongoing support for the Chattahoochee Nature Center and polio vaccinations through the Rotary Foundation.[4]
