In September of 2020, The Pittsburgh Foundation announced a new $1.5 million commitment to support Black- and Brown-led racial justice organizations and their work to end systemic racism. Funds will be awarded during the final quarter of this year as the Foundation builds toward a longer-term strategy for 2021 and beyond. Applications are by invitation only.
