Weinberg Foundation awards $2.75 million to strengthen LGBTQ nonprofit sector in Israel

With the help of a recent analysis from grantee Jewish Funders Network, the Weinberg Foundation has awarded $2.75 million in grants to six nonprofits in Israel over three years to help strengthen these organizations that serve LGBTQ individuals. This includes increasing access to mental health, clinical, and other services; emergency and temporary housing; employment training; and educational programs for youth. The Foundation also hopes to encourage other philanthropies to further fund such efforts.

The following organizations will receive grants as part of this effort:
