Small and Mighty: Friendship Community Church
The Pittsburgh Foundation awarded a 2017 Small and Mighty grant of $11,675 to Friendship Community Church in 2018. For the last seven years, Friendship Community Church has created community programs, event and initiatives through its flagship program, “The Corner.” The west Oakland gathering place provides arts and social safety net programming and a safe “third space” for residents to gather. This grant will fund capacity building including an intern and new computers.
The Small and Mighty grants program, an outcome of the Foundation’s 100 Percent Pittsburgh organizing principle, has, as of Dec. 2019, awarded $1.25 million to nonprofit organizations with budgets of less than $600,000.
