 Major Objectives

PNC has worked to focus its giving on early education (birth to 5 years old) initiatives, specifically earmarking funds for grants to nonprofit organizations which work to directly improve children's school readiness by providing support in one of the following key areas: social and emotional development, teacher training and arts and culture. By focusing our support in these critical areas, we hope to achieve greater results in school readiness, which will yield stronger, smarter and healthier children, families and communities.
