A Message from New Executive Director, Michelle Figlar

I am thrilled to return to South Pittsburgh where I raised my family with the great honor of leading the Birmingham Foundation.

In my service as a member of the Board of Directors for the foundation, I learned so much from my fellow board members, Mark Bibro, and Mernie Schafer. These neighborhoods have remarkable families, unique places, rich histories, and great opportunities. We at the Birmingham Foundation are poised to continue to change the lives of young children in this area.

The Birmingham Foundation finds success through investing in key partnerships in South Pittsburgh. To grow this success, I hope to better understand the hopes and aspirations of this community. I offer my experience in philanthropy and early childhood education to lead the foundation, and I seek in turn to learn what this neighborhood has to offer. I look forward to meeting the grantees, the residents, and the people who live, work, learn, and play in the South Pittsburgh neighborhoods.  As I begin this work, I plan to host listening sessions and to visit the amazing neighborhood non-profits. We at the Birmingham Foundation rely on the community to be partners in our success. I look forward to our work, together.
