With support from PNC’s executive management, PNC Grow Up Great® is directed by Sally McCrady, Director of Community Affairs and Chair and President of the PNC Foundation. A cross-functional corporate team, representing employees from a broad range of PNC businesses and staff areas, assists with overall program strategy. And in each market, a Grow Up Great team helps to execute the program at a local level.
PNC has convened an Advisory Council composed of leaders in the early childhood education field. They provide strategic direction and guidance for the Grow Up Great program.
Among their many roles, council members stand with PNC to advocate for early childhood education, to identify opportunities for strategic partnerships, and to track the progress of our efforts.
