About Us

The Benter Foundation was founded in 2007 to help communities and individuals thrive.

Since then, the Foundation has invested to advance a more livable Pittsburgh, emphasizing downtown and the neighborhoods that comprise the city’s urban core.

Reaching beyond Pittsburgh, the Foundation supports peace building efforts and innovators who create new knowledge to tackle large-scale issues.

Areas of focus include smart transportation, enhancing the arts, sustaining open spaces and fostering global connections and community engagement so that everyone can participate in our region’s progress. This work relies on strong partners who have the tools they need to serve our community effectively.
