Our Approach

COVID-19 Response

During this unprecedented time, the Funds are focusing on our grantees and other partners in our Baltimore and Israel portfolios.  The staff is working remotely and has access to their voice mail and email. We are in the process of formulating our Covid-19 response and will post additional information as it becomes available. For our current grantees, please be in touch with your main point of contact if you have any questions or concerns. If you have reached out to us and have not received a response, we will reply as soon as possible. If you have any other questions, please contact info@magnajm.com.

We hope all of you stay well. 

Following in the generous and visionary footsteps of Joseph “Joe”, Rebecca, Harvey “Bud”, and Lyn Meyerhoff, we make our funding choices by identifying opportunities where our grants can make a genuine difference and leverage investments from other funders. Our experience demonstrates that relatively modest grants can have a large impact. Additionally, our regular grantee convenings cost little and foster powerful connections and collaborations.

We invite you to learn about our approach and explore a sampling of our current and past work. Discover our recent grants through the grant mapping pages.
