Description

Founded in 1951 by Ben and Stella Weingart, the Weingart Foundation is a private, nonprofit grantmaking foundation that seeks to build better communities by providing assistance to people in need, thereby helping them to lead more rewarding and productive lives.

The Foundation gives highest priority to activities that provide greater access to people who are economically disadvantaged and underserved. Of particular interest to the Foundation are applications that specifically address the needs of low-income children and youth, older adults, and people affected by disabilities and homelessness.

The Foundation supports nonprofit organizations in the areas of health, human services and education, across seven Southern California counties including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Ventura and San Diego. During the past thirty-nine years (1972-2011), the Foundation authorized grants of more than $910 million to support a variety of Southern California social services, educational, and community programs. With assets of approximately $718 million, the Foundation continues to be a major philanthropic institution serving the needs of Southern California.
