"Responding to the pandemic – and learning valuable lessons along the way"

As the area’s largest philanthropy, the Richard King Mellon Foundation works under a carefully crafted strategic plan. But our plan never anticipated an historic pandemic. When COVID-19 hit last year, it was essential that we quickly adapt: To meet immediate community needs. To work with trusted partners – such as Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh – to help drive pandemic solutions. And to position the region for economic and societal recovery, once a vaccine was developed. We did so - and learned important lessons along the way that positively impacted our new strategic plan, that will drive our grantmaking for the next decade.
