Recent Grants

There are so many ways in which to inspire, motivate, and shape children. It’s a process that starts early and continues through the school years as we prepare them for a life filled with possibility. Our goal at The Grable Foundation is to identify and support the people, places and activities that can guide and develop children in the Pittsburgh region. Whether it’s an enriched classroom, an afterschool mentor, a joyous performance, or straight talk on the challenges of growing up, our purpose is to enable meaningful outcomes. This searchable database illustrates our work.
