New For-Profit Social-Impact Pitch Competition
The Richard King Mellon Foundation has launched a new $1 million Social-Impact Investment Pitch Competition. We are looking to invest in entrepreneurs whose startup, for-profit businesses seek to make the world a better place, and whose work would advance our Strategic Plan. Three winners will be selected, each receiving investments between $250,000 and $500,000. Applications are due October 10, 2022.
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.
