Although the majority of their giving is concentrated within southwestern Pennsylvania, they work wherever necessary, including statewide and nationally, to fulfill their mission. That mission is to help the region thrive as a whole community, economically, ecologically, educationally and culturally, while advancing the state of knowledge and practice in the fields in which they work. Their fields of emphasis include philanthropy in general and the disciplines represented by their five grant-making programs: Arts & Culture; Children, Youth & Families; Community & Economic Development; Education; and Environment.
