PNC Charitable Trusts

The PNC Charitable Trust Grant Review Committee serves charitable trusts and private foundations for which PNC is trustee. The Committee's mission is to implement the legacies set forth by the individual donors who established these trust relationships with PNC by distributing grants to worthy 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations at local and regional levels.

In accordance with the provisions of the trust agreements, the Committee funds grant requests that demonstrate a capacity and commitment to charitable service and enhance the quality of life for the people and their communities.

Our Grantmaking Priorities

  • Organizations that are direct providers of services, with projects and programs that meet our donors' intent
  • Programs in communities where donors lived and/or engaged in their grantmaking activities
  • Applicant demonstrates a capacity to meet the stated objectives of the request; and those objectives are clearly articulated and measurable
  • The critical nature of the need being addressed by the proposed program
  • Organizations with strong leadership, diversified income streams, and long-term sustainability that have demonstrated efficiencies in delivering their services

Our Committee supports projects and programs that:

  • Reflect the core social mission of the applicant's organization
  • Address a need in the community and for which there is a demonstrated demand
  • Have broad impact or benefit underserved populations
  • Have measurable outcomes and a plan for documenting results
  • Have detailed project budgets and demonstrate effective financial accountability
  • Involve collaboration with other organizations
  • Support year-round programming
  • Complement rather than duplicate the work of other non-profit organizations

The grants are one-time awards and are not pledges of continued support. Size of grants depends on the fit with donors' intent, availability of funds, breadth of organizations represented in the grant proposal mix, and the project's social impact.
