Living For Giving

Boca Raton Philanthropist Marta Batmasian Works To Build Others Up

by Mary Thurman Yuhas

From 9 to 5, she works at Investments Limited, a real estate and investment firm in Boca Raton that she owns with her husband, James. After hours, her pace quickens. Currently, she’s working with four nonprofits; serves on various committees; and is on the board of directors for nine charities, some outside of the area.

“It is my privilege and honor to do what I’m doing,” she says. “It’s so rewarding. You receive so much more than you give.”

Close to Batmasian’s heart is People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership (PROPEL), which she co-founded. The organization helps youth living in economically depressed areas by providing an educational center, The Hub, where students go after school. . . . . Over the past five years, PROPEL students have received more than $130,000 in scholarships.

She also dedicates her time and efforts to the Children’s Science Explorium in Sugar Sand Park, which she started; Love Boca Outreach Ministries, a nonprofit that cares for the homeless; and the Florida Atlantic University Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts And Letters, where she initiated the theater program and is chairwoman of the advisory board.

“My husband and I both like to start things and bring them to a level and then start something else, she says. It’s a busy, crazy and rewarding life.”
