About Us

The Benter Foundation was founded in 2007 to support the leaders,  organizations and ideas that help communities and individuals thrive.

Since then, the Foundation has invested primarily in Pittsburgh-based organizations  committed to advancing  education, youth development, human services, the arts and amenities, global citizenship, and sustainable practices.  Much of this work enhances the quality of life in the region and supports opportunities for individuals to reach their fullest potential.  Each element helps to sustain Pittsburgh’s vitality.

Our grantmaking focus will continue to evolve as we learn together with our grantees and other partners. We invite you to follow this work as it unfolds.
