Community Services

The Foundation helps to build stronger communities through strategic partnerships.

The Weinberg Foundation recognizes that certain service providers operate multiple programs that meet a range of needs and therefore incorporate many of the Foundation’s focus areas. Organizations that provide services bridging the areas of Housing, Health, Jobs, and Education may be eligible for a Community Services grant. The Foundation also is engaged in selected initiatives addressing Jewish poverty on a national scale, as well as strengthening the leadership of nonprofits that will serve the Jewish community moving forward.

Geographic Focus Areas

The Foundation awards Community Services grants to organizations within our priority communities that provide a range of critical services to meet a range of basic needs.

Priorities

Community Services grants must incorporate multiple focus areas outlined in the Housing, Health, Jobs, and Education sections of the website.
