About Our Regional Focus

The Heinz Endowments concentrates its efforts and resources in southwestern Pennsylvania. Given its primarily regional focus, the foundation is generally unable to consider applications for funding for projects outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania unless they have been specifically requested by the foundation.
