The Pittsburgh Foundation

Call to Action/Community Promise

These conversations made clear the importance of The Pittsburgh Foundation continuing to pursue funding and policy opportunities that support the recommendations made by our partners and grantees. We will continue to measure our own community contribution based on progress toward the recommendations shared here by our partners. To do this, we will continue to convene our partners on at least a monthly basis to understand the current realities in our communities so that we may respond with agility to their needs. We will update this web page to reflect changing recommendations.

We encourage other funders to reflect upon the recommendations made by our nonprofit community to make funding decisions. We believe that philanthropy has a duty to listen and respond to the needs of the nonprofits we serve. Their wisdom has the potential to transform our community and increase resilience across all sectors.
