The Pittsburgh Foundation, the University of Pittsburgh's Institute of Politics and the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania joined forces to present a series of three forums designed to enhance community understanding around the public health crisis of gun violence.
People and their stories are at the heart of community philanthropy. In this section, you’ll find stories about how our donors, grantees and partners are working to help our community move from surviving to thriving. PDFs of our printed publications — including Forum, which was published through spring of 2021, and our annual report to the community — are available in the publications section.

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.
The Foundation encourages those who wish to support the efforts of recovery and healing to donate to a few organizations/funds serving the affected areas.
