The PNC Foundation and DonorsChoose.org have joined together to
help preschool teachers obtain more classroom resources through
DonorsChoose.org's education funding platform.
Our work with DonorsChoose.org reflects our commitment to helping children get a strong start in life. This program will directly improve pre-K teachers’ ability to help more students reach their full potential and, through their successes, will strengthen the communities we serve.
PNC encourages employee involvement in PNC Grow Up Great through a progressive policy that permits up to 40 hours a year of paid time off for volunteerism.
Since Grow Up Great’s 2004 inception, more than 66,000 PNC employees have volunteered and approximately 822,000 volunteer hours have been logged at early childhood education centers.
PNC Grow Up Great has established innovative school readiness programs that emphasize vocabulary as preschoolers learn math, science, the arts and financial education.
Our work is guided by some of the nation's most highly respected early childhood experts and nonprofit organizations.
Designed for teachers to use flexibly with existing curricula, we collaborated with our grant partners to develop resources and lessons to enhance hands-on learning for young children.
