He’s the man. Henry W. Bloch is co-founder of the H&R Block tax empire and Bloch School benefactor (since 1986). But Henry is more than a benefactor, he is the role model for what we teach: He embodies the philosophy of working hard, generating wealth and success, and completing the continuum by giving back through philanthropy and social entrepreneurship.
