Grants to Southwestern Pennsylvania nonprofits and schools for programs and projects that benefit local children and improve Pre-K through twelve education. Interested applicants must submit an inquiry by September 1. Funding will be provided for proposals that focus on the following areas:

Early Childhood Development: Even before they start kindergarten, young children deserve to participate in rich learning experiences in high-quality settings, led by caring and well-trained adults. Parents should have access to the support they need to encourage their children's development.

Public Schools: From Pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, schools should ignite students’ interests, stretch their abilities, and set the path toward a successful future. Students, teachers, principals, superintendents, parents, and community members each play a crucial role in this process.

Out-of-School Time: Children and youth should be able to choose from a variety of high-quality afterschool, summer, and mentoring programs that create vital opportunities for exploration, creativity, learning, and meaningful connections with caring adults.

Families: Young people and their families should have easy and frequent access to innovative learning and play spaces, community resources that support their well-being, and celebrations and cultural events that delight them — all designed with kids in mind.

Community: Children, families, and other caring adults should be able to draw upon a vibrant community of strong nonprofit organizations, capable leaders, and robust multimedia resources focused on helping them succeed.

The Grable Foundation is focused on improving the lives of children in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

The Foundation cannot accept unsolicited proposals from outside the above geographic area, nor is the Foundation able to entertain requests from individuals for assistance or sponsor tables at fundraising events.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant should submit an inquiry describing their request prior to submitting a formal proposal.

Full proposals should be submitted only upon request by the Foundation. For your convenience, download a checklist (PDF) of proposal requirements. As Grable’s trustees meet three times per year, your proposal must be submitted by the following deadlines.
