PNC Foundation
We're strengthening and enriching the lives of our neighbors in communities where we live and work.

The PNC Foundation's priority is to form partnerships with community-based nonprofit organizations within the areas we serve and award grants to those which focus on:

  • Early Education: Enhancing educational programs and serving low-and moderate-income children through our signature cause, PNC Grow Up Great
  • Arts & Culture: Infusing appreciation and enrichment of the arts in our communities
  • Economic Development: Promoting the growth of communities through economic development initiatives

PNC Charitable Sponsorships
We provide sponsorships that are unique to the communities we serve.

Through charitable sponsorships, PNC supports education and community and economic development, which includes the arts, culture and financial education. We sponsor activities and initiatives where our employee volunteers, community leaders, local clients and residents can together drive success.

PNC often takes a unique approach to sponsorships, analyzing opportunities for their community impact and sometimes bringing together community-based organizations for the first time to help drive strategic outcomes. Our successful collaborations continue to result in measurable success.

PNC Charitable Trusts
We serve approximately 200 perpetual charitable trusts and private foundations for which PNC is trustee.

PNC's Charitable Trust Grant Review 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 mission is to implement the legacies set forth by the individual donors who established these trust relationships with PNC. Grants are only administered to select regions based on the donor's preference.

$65 million in grants issued annually to recipients in the fields of health, social services, education, religion, the arts, and more.
