OVERVIEW:  John and Amy Weinberg established the John S. and Amy S. Weinberg Foundation. The Weinbergs support education and youth, health, the environment and arts and culture.

BACKGROUND: John S. Weinberg is the son of John L. Weinberg, a former Goldman Sachs management committee chairman, and the grandson of Sidney J. Weinberg, who also once headed the firm. John S. Weinberg graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Business School. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1983 as an associate, became partner in 1992 and retired from the company in 2015. In 2016, he was hired by the investment bank Evercore Partners as executive chairman and chairman of the board.

ISSUES:

EDUCATION & YOUTH: The Weinbergs do not outline specific initiatives for their education and youth funding. They support their alma maters: Princeton, Harvard and Smith. John S. Weinberg is also a trustee of Middlebury College in Vermont. Other past grantees include Deerfield Academy, the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, New York City’s TEAK Fellowship program and the National Outdoor Leadership School.

HEALTH: The Weinbergs are longtime supporters of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Amy serves on its board of trustees. The disease has affected several generations of the Weinberg family, and together they made a $15 million commitment to the Milestones to a Cure campaign in 2008. Other past grantees in the area of health include National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, New York University’s Langone Medical Center, and Caron Treatment Centers.

ENVIRONMENT:  Weinbergs have supported the Nature Conservancy and the Greenwich Land Trust.

ARTS & CULTURE: The Weinbergs have shown a strong interest in theater, having supported New York City’s Roundabout Theatre Company and the Martha's Vineyard Theater Foundation.

LOOKING FORWARD: Weinberg will likely continue to support their alma maters, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other organizations in which they have shown specific interests. They may also further develop their philanthropic support for innovative education and theater programs.
