From Indiana, Conrad Prebys moved to California with $500 in his pocket and a dream. Over the following decades, he built a real estate empire as one of the largest private owners of residential multi-family properties in San Diego County. 

During his later years, Conrad became dedicated to the community through charities, donating over $350M to organizations devoted to healthcare, medical research, visual & performing arts, higher 
education, youth development, animal conservation, and more. 

To ensure his vision extended beyond his life, Conrad created The Conrad Prebys Foundation to perpetuate his commitment to philanthropic endeavors in San Diego.
