The Power to Do Great Things
The Pittsburgh Foundation works to improve the quality of life in the Pittsburgh region by evaluating and addressing community issues, promoting responsible philanthropy, and connecting donors to the critical needs of the community.
$43 million total for grantmaking is 22 percent more than for 2015
New program funds 18 organizations with budgets under $600,000
PITTSBURGH, March 16, 2017 – For small, community-based nonprofits, applying for foundation grants can seem insurmountably difficult, when there are few people on staff who have expertise in writing grants.
PITTSBURGH, March 23, 2017 – To support nonprofits that provide basic needs to vulnerable populations, The Pittsburgh Foundation is organizing its Critical Needs Alert online fundraising event this year with a public donations goal of $600,000 fortified with a $600,000 match pool from The Pittsburgh Foundation to ensure success.
Sometimes, a little money goes a long way. That is the idea behind The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Small and Mighty grants program, which provides modest sums to small nonprofits with big dreams.
