Theory of Change
No single organization can single-handedly solve all issues.
The Forbes Funds strives to make services and resources to be about more than just money. We seek to be a catalyst for strategic collaboration on a broader and deeper level.
Collective genius and strategic relationships are the means for collective impact in the greater Pittsburgh area and beyond.
Going beyond grants to support nonprofits of all sizes.
Going beyond grantmaking to support nonprofits holistically.
“My impression of The Forbes Funds is that it’s not just about funding; it’s about supporting the organization.”
ACCEL boosts fundraising campaign.
“ACCEL laid out a clear plan for implementing a successful year-end campaign. Basically, I took their recommendations and made necessary changes. The process was stress-free since their layout and examples were so clear.”
Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership is worth its value.
“The GPNP membership is truly worth its value. This is an opportunity for nonprofits to come together, to talk, to collaborate…to bring us all together to see what we can do and create more impact…for our kids and communities.”
The Forbes Funds is not just about grant funding.
“The Forbes Funds is about achieving what you are not prepared for: planning, execution, and resource management.”
