Remembering Alfred "Burr" Wishart Jr.

It is with great sadness that we learned Alfred “Burr” Wishart Jr., the longest serving leader of The Pittsburgh Foundation, died Thursday, April 20, in his home in Vero Beach, Florida, at age 91. Burr was a force for good who demonstrated how community philanthropy could serve as a unifying force and a lever for transformational change.
