Greenebaum Enterprises considers philanthropy essential to its company mission. Focused on the fields of education and medicine, the company is committed to making significant contributions to philanthropies it supports. Major gifts include:
The Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center
As a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC) is in the top tier of cancer centers in the United States. UMGCCC provides cutting-edge cancer treatment – often from bench to bedside – to families in regions throughout Maryland and families from distant locales traveling to UMGCCC for life-saving care. UMGCCC leads important cancer research, offering new breakthroughs for people worldwide.
The Stewart J. Greenebaum Professorship in Stroke Neurology
Established through the generous support of the Greenebaum Family Foundation, this endowment recognizes the life-saving care provided by Dr. Barney Stern and the physicians at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) Department of Neurology. Funding from this professorship will be used to advance biomedical research aimed at understanding, diagnosing, and treating stroke. The Greenebaum Professorship is the first in Stroke Medicine at the School of Medicine.
Marlene Greenebaum Multidisciplinary Breast Center
In 2011, the Marlene Greenebaum Multidisciplinary Breast Center at Hadassah University Medical Center opened in Jerusalem. The Greenebaums’ $1.5 million gift enabled Israeli women to access the one-stop breast cancer treatment which has proved comforting and medically advantageous to women in top U.S. cancer centers. Recently, the Greenebaums traveled to the Center with top cancer doctors from the U.S. to share advances, new research avenues and care protocols.
The Maryland Half Marathon & 5K
In 2009, Michael Greenebaum founded a vital new source of funds for UMGCCC. The Maryland Half Marathon & 5K, a now-annual non-profit race has raised more than $3 million for UMGCCC’s cancer treatment and research. Michael and co-founder Jon Sevel, conceived the event as an inclusive fundraiser, bringing people together, including 5K runners, welcoming walkers and encouraging cheering residents along the route. Signs along the race route, marked Run with a Purpose, honor individuals fighting cancer.
