Buhl Foundation

The mission of the Buhl Foundation is to create community legacies by leveraging its resources to encourage people and organizations to dream, to innovate and to take action. Committed to a place-based strategy, The Buhl Foundation invests in the lives and futures of the residents of the Northside through its One Northside initiative.


One Northside, a model for community-driven neighborhood revitalization and system change aims to catalyze and support non-profit agencies and partners serving Pittsburgh’s 18 Northside neighborhoods in five pillars – safety, health, education, employment, and place. 



For over 120 years, the Sarah Heinz House Association has been dedicated to promoting the overall well-being and empowerment of local youth. A key component is our strong partnerships with organizations, trusts, and philanthropists who share our vision.


These partnerships allow us to work together towards a common goal of improving our community, and we are grateful for the support and guidance provided by our partners.


Join our circle of 'doers' and help us make a positive impact on the lives of kids in Pittsburgh and beyond.
