Elion Announces Social Impact Partnership with Fútbol Con Corazón USA


Real Estate Investment Firm Doubles Down on Corporate Philanthropy Efforts with Newest Strategic Alliance

Elion Partners, a vertically integrated real estate investment firm with offices in Miami, New York and Seattle, today announced its alliance with FCC USA, the United States extension of the Latin American organization, Fútbol con Corazón meaning “Soccer with Heart.”

Through the philanthropic partnership, the firm will provide the non-profit with funding and resources to expand domestically, bringing its hands-on, soccer-driven approach to educating underprivileged youth to various markets across the United States, beginning with Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In line with Elion’s commitment to fostering the well-being of its people, partners and future generations, also known as The Elion Way™ (“T.E.W.™”) methodology, the partnership with FCC USA will focus on its three social pillars: racial equity, female empowerment, and mental health.

“Empowering our employees and the communities we serve is deeply rooted in our company culture that embraces inclusion, diversity, and social responsibility; by partnering with FCC USA, we are able to do just that,” said Shlomo Khoudari, Managing Partner at Elion. “The organization helps educate children on the most important issues of our time while enhancing their social-emotional wellbeing. We are thrilled to be able to support such an important cause and ultimately, do our part in building a better future for all.”

Since its inception 13 years ago, FCC has impacted more than 100,000 children and their families across its programs, most of them from low-income households or considered at-risk youth. Now, with a footprint in the South Florida market, FCC USA offers a roster of free activities for both children and parents, including afterschool programs, summer camp and parent/teacher summits.

“By blending values-based sports instruction with health and life workshops, our team is able to empower members of underserved communities to feel confident, disciplined and motivated in their everyday lives,” said Silvia Haba de Merlo, Executive Director of FCC USA. “None of this would be possible without the generous support of Elion, and we thank them for continuing to dedicate their time and resources to our organization.”
