As a hands-on philanthropic organization, the Weisberg Family Foundation, is proud of the innovative programs that we have created to fill needs we saw in our local community and abroad.
The Free Library Initiative program began in September 2017 as a way to encourage literacy skills and a love of reading in preschool- 4th grade age children. The bimonthly program consists of a read aloud, book discussion and gift of a free book twice a month to encourage children reading at home and to ensure that each child had access to books, regardless of their family’s financial situation.
Unbridled Power is an 8-week experiential learning program currently offered to underprivileged or at-risk youth , children in group foster care, and veterans through Weisberg Stables. The program utilizes horses to teach and develop essential life-skills.
Hope Academy serves approximately 170 children living in the Barrio George section of the Dominican Republic (near La Romana). By providing an education to children who would otherwise not be able to attend school at all, we believe we can help lift children out of poverty and find hope for their future through the gift of an education.

The program runs year round and provides five program events per year in addition to four Mission Trip Scholarships to children who have completed the Charitable Children Core Program and participated in the program for a minimum of one year.
The opportunity to go to summer camp can be a life changing experience for many children living in challenging circumstances. The Foundation offers that opportunity to underprivileged or at-risk children across the United States.
