PNC Grow Up Great

PNC and the PNC Foundation have long histories of strengthening and enriching the lives of our neighbors in communities in which we live and work. For decades, PNC has provided resources to seed ideas, foster development initiatives and encourage leadership in nonprofit organizations where imagination and determination are at work enhancing people's lives everyday.

To build on this commitment, PNC developed PNC Grow Up Great, a $350 million program to help improve the school readiness of millions of children from birth to age 5. As part of this initiative, the PNC Foundation has earmarked funds for grants to nonprofit organizations which work to directly improve children’s school readiness by providing support in one of the following key areas: social and emotional development, teacher training and arts and culture. By focusing our support in these critical areas, PNC hopes to achieve greater results in school readiness, which will yield stronger, smarter and healthier children, families and communities.
