John and Amy Weinberg

NET WORTH: Unknown  

SOURCE OF WEALTH: Goldman Sachs

FUNDING AREAS: Education & Youth, Health, Environment, Arts & Culture

OVERVIEW:  John and Amy Weinberg move their philanthropy through the John S. and Amy S. Weinberg Foundation. The Weinbergs support their schools. Another interest is health; the family is heavily involved with Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

BACKGROUND: John S. Weinberg graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Business School. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1983 as an associate and made partner in 1992. He later served as vice chair before retiring after 32 years with the firm.

ISSUES:

EDUCATION & YOUTH: The Weinbergs support their schools, including Smith College (Amy is an alumna), Deerfield Academy, Harvard, and Princeton. Other grantees have included Dartmouth, Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, The TEAK Fellowship, National Outdoor Leadership School, Trinity Episcopal School, and Middlebury College. The couple are Middlebury parents and Weinberg is a trustee.  Recently, Dartmouth and Harvard have placed high in the couple's giving.

HEALTH: The Weinbergs are strongly involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; Amy sits on the board of trustees. The disease has affected the family across generations and members of the family made a $15 million commitment to the Milestones to a Cure campaign. Other grantees have included National MS Society, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, NYU Langone Medical Center, and Caron Treatment Center.

ENVIRONMENT:  Weinberg and Amy via their foundation also support environmental organizations like The Nature Conservancy and The Greenwich Land Trust.

ARTS & CULTURE: Grantees have included Roundabout Theatre Company and Martha's Vineyard Theater Foundation.

LOOKING FORWARD: Weinberg retired from Goldman a few years ago, so perhaps more money will move out of the couple’s foundation in the coming years.
