In 2015, the merger between The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County (CFWC) and The Pittsburgh Foundation was permanently ratified, signaling a new era of collaboration and growth for both organizations. The merger provides donors and grantees of both Foundations with significant advantages, including lower fees. Lower fees allow a higher percentage of The CFWC’s dollars to go directly to strategic grantmaking. Today, The CFWC has grown to nearly 200 funds valued at $21 million and has granted more than $14 million to local nonprofit organizations.
The merger also puts donors at the center of our initiatives and provides direct access to our subject-matter experts in grantmaking, fundraising and financial management. Their knowledge and experience help donors make the greatest impact with their philanthropy. As a result of this partnership, our entire region is better positioned to engage in the most effective, high-impact grantmaking possible.
