The Weinberg Foundation grants approximately $100 million each year to nonprofits that provide direct services for low-income and vulnerable individuals and families, primarily in the US and Israel.
Since 1980, the Foundation has distributed grants totaling $1.86 billion. The Weinberg Foundation administers most of its funding in its “hometown” communities: Maryland, Northeastern Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Israel, and the Former Soviet Union. These areas represent deep, personal ties to the life and legacy of Harry Weinberg.
The Weinberg Foundation is committed to funding nonprofits in the Jewish community, as well as the community-at-large, with particular emphasis on assisting the poorest and frailest older adults so they can live in dignity. Other areas supported by the Foundation include preparing the workforce for 21st century jobs, ensuring that people’s basic needs are met, increasing the independence and integration of people with disabilities, and providing high quality education for children.
The only building owned or operated by the Foundation, and displaying the names of Harry and Jeanette Weinberg, is the Foundation’s office in Owings Mills, Maryland. All other buildings named for Harry and Jeanette Weinberg – wherever located in the world — are owned and operated by either the recipient organizations that received a Foundation grant or by other third-parties not affiliated with The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
