Weingart Foundation

The Weingart Foundation seeks to achieve inclusion and opportunity for all Southern Californians, especially for those who have historically been excluded due to their race, income level, gender, religion, immigration status, disability, age, sexual orientation, or zip code.

To achieve this goal, the Foundation’s grantmaking program and other support are designed to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations, collaboratives, and coalitions working to meet essential needs, expand opportunity and eliminate structural barriers to equity by building the community power required to sustain long-term prosperity. Our vision is:

  • A robust network of nonprofits in Southern California working with individuals and communities facing the greatest barriers to opportunity, and

  • Meaningful policy and systems change that advance racial, social and economic equity.
