The Weissberg Foundation (“Foundation”) envisions a just world that recognizes inequities and builds access, opportunity, and power so that all can thrive. Through funding, amplification, capacity building, and collaboration, the Foundation advances organizations and efforts that give voice and opportunity to historically marginalized populations. The Foundation supports this mission and its operations with the assets in its Endowment Portfolio (“Endowment”). All capital has impact (positive, negative, and neutral) and the Foundation will evaluate this impact through the lens of our mission, economic opportunity, and with attention to the broader public good. We acknowledge that capital markets perpetuate structures of unequal access to opportunities, which reinforces and grows the social and economic inequities of our society. Only through intentional allocation of capital can we influence, expose, and change these existing conditions. Achieving social equity and sustainability requires alignment of our Endowment with the Foundation’s mission and vision. A fiduciary responsibility of the Foundation is to invest capital to maximize a rate of return in a way that that does not harm or detract from its mission or vision. When applicable, the Foundation will prioritize investments in traditionally marginalized populations, reduction of inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, and peace justice and strong institutions.
