Investing in the Future of Our Region & Beyond

Since 1947, the Richard King Mellon Foundation has invested in the future of Southwestern Pennsylvania, and in the protection and restoration of America’s environmental heritage.

2021-2030 Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan is a roadmap to award more than $1.2 billion from 2021-2030. It is a plan to focus the Foundation’s resources on the most powerful pathways to greater opportunity and prosperity for the people of southwestern Pennsylvania. And to do even more to protect, steward, and activate environmentally sensitive land in southwestern Pennsylvania and across the United States.

See our Jan. 27 presentation of the new Strategic Plan.

The core of our strategy is six mutually reinforcing programs. All six programs invest in bold, evidence-informed solutions that align with our mission and contribute to positive change.
