Birmingham Foundation

Independent community-focused foundation dedicated to youth-oriented and human services grantmaking in South Pittsburgh

Our prayer is that all our people be treated with dignity and respect.

When one of our members is disrespected, we all are disrespected.

Bigotry, hatred, inequality is no longer an option.

We are all in this together!
