Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation
The Foundation makes grants in three program areas that reach organizations in West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania (Allegheny, Fayette, Greene, and Washington counties). Grants are awarded in education, economic development, and civic engagement. Education grants seek to promote successful learning throughout the educational system from pre-kindergarten to postsecondary education. Economic development grants support economic development activities based on the regionís strengths in research, technology, and advanced manufacturing. Civic engagement grants support programs that promote, plan, and implement regional cooperation. In addition, the Foundation supports programs that are unique to each state. The Foundation generally invests two thirds of its grant dollars in West Virginia and one third in organizations and projects in southwestern Pennsylvania.
