About The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, one of the largest private charitable foundations in the United States, is dedicated to meeting the basic needs of people experiencing poverty. Each year, the Foundation gives about $150 million in grants to nonprofits in the United States and Israel that provide direct services in the areas of Housing, Health, Jobs, Education, and Aging. Grants serve a range of individuals, including older adults, women at risk and their children, people with disabilities, and veterans, as well as the Jewish community.

The Foundation administers the majority of its funding in its priority communities: Baltimore, Hawaiʻi, Israel, New York City, Northeastern Pennsylvania, and San Francisco. This includes supporting nonprofits serving federally designated rural areas within, or adjacent to, these priority communities. All of these locations represent personal ties to the life and legacy of Harry Weinberg, as well as communities where Weinberg Foundation trustees reside and provide leadership. Since 1990, the Foundation has distributed grants totaling more than $2.8 billion.
