Our Grantmaking

The Fine Foundation invests in projects that enrich the Pittsburgh region by encouraging arts and culture to thrive; Jewish life to flourish; and the fields of science and medicine to take creative and impactful approaches that improve people’s health, well-being, and quality of life.

Since its founding in 2007, the foundation has supported catalytic projects that play a role in making Pittsburgh a model for how philanthropy and the nonprofit community can work towards common goals in strengthening our community. With few exceptions, funding is limited to the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania region.

Important Message to All Grantseekers

The Fine Foundation is continuing its invitation-only grantmaking process in an effort to focus giving and impact in these unusual times.

From June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022,
the foundation will not be accepting unsolicited proposals.

We remain committed to supporting Pittsburgh-based organizations, particularly in arts and culture and Jewish life, but have temporarily suspended grantmaking in our science and medicine program.
