"We are grateful to The Pittsburgh Foundation and their generous investments in our students, who represent the future of our region," said Matthew Stinson, Westminster’s vice president for institutional advancement.

In 2013, the Foundation and its Supporting Organizations awarded more than $42.5 million in grants to the vast array of nonprofit organizations, students through scholarships, and medical researchers, based on donor interests and specific purposes of individual funds. 

Since 1945, The Pittsburgh Foundation has been connecting its generous donors with the critical needs of the community.  Donors who have established funds through the Foundation can support virtually any area of charitable interest in Pittsburgh, or anywhere in the United States.
