About THE Point


THE Point is a blog from The Heinz Endowments designed to provide information, insight and commentary from the organization’s leadership and program staff about our philanthropic initiatives, focusing on critical issues affecting the well-being of communities in southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond.

Pittsburgh’s transformative development is at a crucial juncture. Great things have and are being accomplished, but there is still much to be done.

Our blog will provide news and views from the Endowments’ leadership and about the work of our staff in our key grant-making areas — Children, Youth & Families; Arts & Culture; Community & Economic Development; Education; and Environment. We will also be discussing big and important issues affecting individuals and families living in our region together with leadership programs designed to address them, and from time to time, we will invite guest posts from our community.

We welcome your comments. You may contribute to the conversation through the comment section of this blog, or share articles with your networks on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. Also you can sign up for our regular email updates or receive headlines via RSS feed.

Please join us. We want the Pittsburgh we know and love to be a place of hope and opportunity for all. Together, we can make a difference, improving the quality of life for our families, friends and neighbors.
