2X Match on Pre-K projects with PNC Grow Up Great ®

Update 1/2/18: All available funding for this opportunity has been applied to eligible projects, and new donations will no longer be matched.  We'll update this page if any additional funding becomes available!


Right now, PNC Grow Up Great® is matching all donations to qualifying pre-K and Head Start projects in PNC's geographic footprint!  As a special surprise, all pre-K and Head Start projects in PNC's geographic footprint were also flash funded on April 4, 2017.  Teachers: if your project was fully funded, you’re also eligible for this match offer on your next project!

PNC believes deeply in the power of high-quality early childhood education and are dedicated to providing innovative opportunities that assist families, educators and community organizations to enhance children’s learning and development. PNC Grow Up Great is excited to support this 2X Match offer for qualifying pre-K and Head Start projects!
