The Grable Foundation endeavors to improve the lives of children and youth in the greater Pittsburgh region. With attention to kids whose opportunities are limited due to economic circumstances, we support (a) early learning and development, (b) enhanced learning in public school classrooms, (c) out-of-school time learning, (d) family and caregiver learning and support, and (e) vibrant places that contribute positively to kids’ learning and well-being.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept proposals from organizations and schools outside of southwestern Pennsylvania (unless invited), nor are we able to respond favorably to requests from individuals for assistance or requests to sponsor fundraising events.

Please note that indirect/general overhead/administrative cost assessments, such as those typically expressed by percentage add-ons and often applied by educational, research, and other institutions cannot be included in the amount of any grants awarded. However, direct administrative grant expenses can be requested and will be considered if justified in the project budget.

To submit an inquiry, we invite you to log onto our online grant system to access our inquiry form.
