Grants Focus Areas

As a member of the South Pittsburgh community, The Birmingham Foundation supports local organizations in developing, implementing, and advancing their efforts to help young children birth to age eight and their families thrive. Annually, the Foundation welcomes letters of interest from nonprofit organizations whose services align with one of our three focus areas:

Maternal and Child Health (Prenatal to 3)

Every child deserves a healthy start in life and every mother should have access to quality healthcare during pregnancy and childbirth. 

  • Pre and Post Natal Care
  • Home Visiting
  • Developmental Screenings and Early Intervention
  • Social and Emotional Wellbeing Supports

Early Care and Education (Birth to age 8)

Children with access to quality early learning are more prepared for kindergarten, have increased vocabulary, enhanced language, math and social skills, and more positive relationships with their classmates. These children are more likely to graduate from high school, attend college, enter the labor force, earn living wages, and thrive.

  • Workforce Supports
  • Access to Quality Culturally Responsive Programs
  • Kindergarten Transition
  • Social and Emotional Wellbeing Supports


All families deserve a better future no matter their race, ethnicity, or zip code. Poverty, like wealth, is passed down from generation to generation. Decades of racial inequity and underinvestment in our communities have kept families trapped in a cycle.Breaking the cycle by investing in parents and families builds overall well-being, financial strength, and social connections to lift two generations at once.

  • Family Engagement
  • Access to Services
  • Social Connectedness and Leadership
  • Social and Emotional Wellbeing Supports
