The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation today welcomed Sheryl Goldstein as the Foundation’s new Program Director for the Foundation’s U.S. Education grants work. Goldstein takes the position vacated by Amy Gross, who left the Foundation in May to become the Executive Director of the France-Merrick Foundation.
Of course, this isn’t the only recent change within the Weinberg Foundation. This past March, Donn Weinberg, Foundation Executive Vice President, concluded his three-year term as Chairman of the Board. Ellen M. Heller succeeded Weinberg as Chair and will serve in that role for the next three years. Both will continue in their roles as Trustees.
Prior to joining the Weinberg Foundation, Goldstein worked in numerous legal and public service roles in the United States and overseas. Most recently, she served as Director of Program Development for the Police Executive Research Forum in Washington, DC. Goldstein is well-known and highly-regarded for her work as Director of the Mayor’s Office on Criminal Justice in Baltimore. Additional prior positions include Goldstein serving in senior posts with the Center for Court Innovation in New York City, the Baltimore Jewish Council, the Baltimore County Executive’s Office, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Kosovo.
