The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in the United States, today hosted its 6th annual Employee Giving Program. At the event, 16 employees presented a check for $10,000 to a Maryland nonprofit, consistent with the Foundation’s mission and grant guidelines – a total of $160,000 this year and more than $750,000 since the inception of this professional development and mission-focused effort.
“This is always a very special day for all of us at the Weinberg Foundation, on many different levels,” said Donn Weinberg, Foundation Chairman of the Board. “We know of no other philanthropic organization which provides its entire staff with the opportunity to engage directly in the grantmaking process. Every year, it seems, these grants reveal deep personal connections and stories which only magnify the significance of the grants themselves.”
