This is an incredibly exciting, transformational time for the Weinberg Foundation. Following months of careful consideration and planning, the Foundation has reorganized its grantmaking into four primary areas: Housing, Health, Jobs, and Education. We have two main goals: to increase the Foundation’s ability to be strategic and impactful, while enhancing the grantee experience.
The Foundation remains dedicated to meeting the needs of specific populations, including older adults, women and children at risk, people with disabilities, individuals experiencing homelessness, and veterans. In short, our focus on meeting the basic needs of low-income and vulnerable people is not changing; rather the Foundation’s strategic framework is evolving to better achieve sustainable and meaningful impact.
The Foundation’s new website—which we hope you find even more useful and informative—will help you learn and navigate this new framework. Our goal, in addition to showcasing our new, streamlined grantmaking structure, was to make it easier to find information and, more specifically, to apply for a grant. As a result, grantees now are able to use a fully-automated online grants intake tool.
Our website also now includes a blog, which provides the Foundation with a new, distinct communications platform—one that will allow us to better focus important news and messaging to key audiences and stakeholders through unique content.
