PNC Foundation Overview
PNC and the PNC Foundation have long histories of strengthening and enriching the lives of our neighbors in communities in which we live and work. For decades, we have provided resources to seed ideas, foster development initiatives and encourage leadership in nonprofit organizations where imagination and determination are at work enhancing people's lives everyday.
To build on this commitment, PNC developed PNC Grow Up Great, a $350 million, multi-year, bilingual initiative that began in 2004 to help prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. As part of this initiative, the PNC Foundation has earmarked funds for grants to nonprofit organizations which work to directly improve children's school readiness by providing support in one of the following key areas: math, science, and the arts. By focusing our support in these critical areas, we hope to achieve greater results in school readiness, which will yield stronger, smarter and healthier children, families and communities.
The PNC Foundation's priority is to form partnerships with community-based nonprofit organizations within the markets PNC serves in order to enhance educational opportunities for children, particularly underserved pre-K children through our signature, PNC Grow Up Great program, and to promote the growth of targeted communities through economic development initiatives.
New Online Application Process
Beginning in January 2014, the PNC Foundation and Community Affairs functions within PNC will implement a web-based application process for grants from the PNC Foundation and charitable sponsorships from PNC Bank, NA. This significant change is one that will save your organization time and improve your organization’s ability to submit and track the status of these applications.
This new process will eliminate our paper based applications. You will be required to create an online account in the new system when you next apply.
The look and feel may be different, but local consideration of your requests, our mission and the information we request remains substantially the same.
If you have already completed a paper based application for either a grant or charitable sponsorship in 2013 for an activity in 2014 and you have not yet been notified of the outcome of your application, you must resubmit your application via the web-based application process in January 2014 in order for your application to be reviewed by us.
