About this funder:



Note: To apply, submit an initial Letter of Intent via email. Upon approval and by invitation you will then be asked to submit a Full Grant Application, due by the "full proposal" deadlines above. 

The Community Foundation of Western PA & Eastern OH has one guiding purpose, that is to help individuals give back to a region for which they care about deeply. Our founding fund, the O’Brien Children Memorial Fund, started it all by raising $53, 997 during a fundraiser in 1981. Since then we have helped donors grant over $50 million into the community.

Our mission is simple: We are here to serve the community.
