The Power To Give Where It Matters Since 1945, The Pittsburgh Foundation has been connecting its generous donors with the critical needs of our community through grantmaking.

The mission of the Foundation's  grantmaking is to honor donor intent by engaging, convening and conducting research to meet the basic needs of those who live and work in the community. The Foundation’s strategic plan seeks to support organizations and projects that create conditions where individuals and families can become self-sustaining through quality pre-K-12 education, opportunities for meaningful work, affordable housing, accessible public transportation and access to affordable healthcare. We also work with our partners to create a region comprised of healthy communities where individuals and families thrive, where racial equity, diversity and inclusion are the accepted practice, and where the voices of the people we serve are heard and amplified through civic engagement, public policy and advocacy.  

"I was very early on in producing my first feature-length documentary. Support from The Pittsburgh Foundation could not have come at a better time. Knowing (the Foundation) was behind me helped me navigate filmmaking challenges and connect with parts of the Pittsburgh community I needed to complete my dream project."

Julie Sokolow, who received funding from the Investing in Professional Artists program
