Hoffberger Foundation, Baltimore, MD

Towards a new generation of leadership and impact

The Hoffberger Foundation, dedicated to meeting unmet needs in Baltimore, with a significant emphasis on the Jewish community, engaged METStrategies to help its board refine and focus its giving strategy. What emerged as another primary need was assistance with the inter-generational transfer of leadership.  With three generations of family members active in the Foundation, the assignment called for sensitivity, intuition and humor as issues of faith, filial duty and civic responsibility came to the fore. The new giving strategy was launched in 2010. As a follow on assignment, METStrategies developed a communications plan, new graphic identity and website to communicate the foundation’s new direction.
