Heinz Endowments

With grant making that averages $60 million annually, Heinz ranks among the 50 largest foundations in the country. Areas of focus for this Pittsburgh-based foundation include, education, revitalizing Pittsburgh's downtown, and fostering “sustainable innovation,” which the foundation defines as technologies that benefit both the economy and the environment.  Recognizing that a place-based initiative involving significant community engagement would enable Heinz to coordinate its efforts better and have greater impact, in 2012 it launched a new initiative focused on improving the quality of life in Pittsburgh’s Hazelwood neighborhood.  Projects being explored in collaboration with Hazelwood residents include a family support center, a charter school, a community center, housing improvements, and new transit options.
