2021-2030 Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan is a roadmap to award more than $1.2 billion in grants and program-related investments 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.


The core of our strategy is six mutually reinforcing programs: Four primary program areas (Conservation, Economic Development, Economic Mobility and Health & Well-Being) and two cross-functional programs (nonprofit Organizational Effectiveness, and for-profit Social-Impact Investments).

All six programs invest in bold, evidence-informed solutions that align with our mission and contribute to positive change.


Our grants and program-related investments are supplemented by partnership building and convening, to bring partners together from all sectors to spark new insights and foster collaboration. And our communications share powerful stories, to enhance our partners’ impact and to invite others to join our priority strategies.


We rigorously measure our work and its impacts to ensure we are achieving our goals.
