The Alvin and Fanny B. Thalheimer Foundation  

Program Areas

The Directors have decided to review the Foundation's Program Areas and Guidelines to ensure that the family's philanthropic principles and values are being accurately reflect. While this review is underway no new proposals will be accepted and no new grants will be awarded. Please check on this website for updates. Any new or revised Guidelines be posted once the review is complete.

Our Founders were deeply committed and involved citizens of Baltimore.  They served on numerous boards and supported many organizations.  The Foundation remains conscious of their interests, but realizes that it can not have an impact if it makes grants in too many areas. Therefore it has adopted the following guidelines and restricts its grantmaking to two primary areas:

Baltimore Communal Giving
To improve the lives of Baltimore residents by supporting efforts to improve quality public education, funding workforce development and job opportunity programs and addressing basic needs.

Jewish Communal Giving
To support programs which address unmet needs of the community and to support the growth of a rich and diverse Jewish communal life and culture both domestically and in other parts of the world.
