The Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds are a group of funds established over the years by Joseph “Joe” and Rebecca Meyerhoff and their son and daughter-in-law, Harvey “Bud” and Lyn Meyerhoff. The funds allow our family to make significant contributions to improve the quality of life for Baltimore, and in the Jewish community locally, nationally, in the former Soviet Union, and in Israel.
Bud and Lyn’s four children and ten grandchildren currently steward the group of funds, carrying out their parents’ and grandparents’ legacy. All agree that the family's deep historical connection to Baltimore calls for continued investment here, as well as with projects affecting the Jewish people. We make grants to cultural and educational institutions, and community and service organizations.
A family-only committee manages our grantmaking and strategy around our work. This committee is currently chaired by Lee M. Hendler.
