Funding Nonprofits That Punch Above Their Weight 

Friday, January 5, 2018

Twenty-two organizations that meet basic needs in Pittsburgh communities have received funding through the second round of the Small and Mighty grant program, developed by The Pittsburgh Foundation.  “As we had hoped, Small and Mighty is helping us reach individuals and communities that we might not have previously,” said Michelle McMurray, senior program officer for Health and Human Services who manages the project. “For 32 of the 40 organizations receiving grants in both years of funding, it was their first time applying. Additionally, 70 percent of these grantees are organizations led by people of color – a historically underfunded segment of the nonprofit sector.”
