The Google.org Impact Challenge Pittsburgh gives local nonprofits the opportunity to make our neighborhoods better by creating economic opportunity in the Pittsburgh area. Four winners will each receive $50,000 grants, plus training from Google to jump-start their projects. Then, the public will vote on a People’s Choice winner which will receive an additional $50,000!
The challenge panel of advisors who will help review the submissions and select the four winners includes:
Founder, Best of the Batch Foundation
Co Founder, Impellia
Former Pittsburgh Steeler
Mary Frances Cooper
President and Director, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
President, The Heinz Endowments
