Welcome to the McElhattan Foundation. We are a Pittsburgh-based grantmaking foundation.

Our mission is preserving and enhancing human life, and we are working toward this by focusing our grantmaking on four program areas:

Learning doesn't stop, even when we can't be together. Our grantees know this and have gone above and beyond to stay connected with the learners they serve: providing food, cleaning supplies, and many hours of virtual programming. Let's all learn from these uncertain times and harness the power of learning each and every day. In honor of #143Day, the McElhattan Foundation is joining the national conversation with @remakelearning to elevate public attention to how we can #RemakeTomorrow as a better place for all learners.

Just last year, the United States had over 5,000 men and women lose their lives on the job. Each fatality is a catastrophic, unrecoverable loss for their families, co-workers, and communities. We are proud to partner with the National Safety Council (NSC) to join in their mission of ending death on the job by the year 2050. Last January, NSC launched Work to Zero to educate employers about technological safety advancements that promise to reduce and ultimately eliminate deaths in the workplace. Since the program’s inception, NSC has created an advisory council of top safety leaders and has conducted research into emerging and existing technologies that could reduce fatality risk in the most hazardous situations for workers. The council will release a comprehensive report detailing these technologies in February at the Work to Zero Conference. To learn more about how you can help make workplace deaths a thing of the past, visit nsc.org/worktozero.

Five years post college graduation and @thepittsburghpromise continues to present me with life changing opportunities. I’m forever grateful for donors big and small who support the Promise; a scholarship that gave me $20,000 to earn a degree from Duquesne University. Now, as a freelance photographer and videographer for the Promise, I’ve found rewarding work in my city and have made some incredible connections along the way. Every child deserves a fair shot at success and that’s what the Promise provides! .
