Donald Trump: New York Business Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

Donald Trump owns some of the most prestigious pieces of prime real estate in New York City. Trump has slapped his Trump brand name on some of the finest hotels, casinos and building complexes in the city.

Donald Trump was born in New York on the 14th of June 1946. His father Fred Trump was a successful property developer that helped form the young Donald's business sense. Donald acknowledged his father's influence by stating that “My father was my mentor, and I learned a tremendous amount about every aspect of the construction industry from him.”.

Trump began his career in his family's real estate business after studying at the Wharton Business School. He worked with his father for five years and was extremely successful in making profitable deals. His father commented on his son's business success by stating that "everything he seems to touch turns to gold". He has continued to amass a tremendous selection of business successes, and also devotes a good deal of his wealth to philanthropic efforts.

He has created many educational grants, such as the Donald J. Trump New York City challenge grant, initiated on behalf of the United Way of New York City. The New York real estate magnate has also given away 436 acres of wooded parkland in the northern suburbs of New York, and provided financial assistance to many New York-based businesses in several industries.
