During the past year, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation distributed more than $90 million in grants to nonprofits serving low-income and vulnerable individuals and families.

Since 1980, the Foundation has distributed grants totaling $1.9 billion. Foundation grants are allocated through six program areas and are focused on meeting basic needs such as shelter, nutrition, health, and socialization and on enhancing an individual's ability to meet those needs. Additionally, the Foundation's grantmaking emphasizes serving older adults and the Jewish community.
