The foundation provided $550,000 in funding to the Zoological Society of Pittsburgh to support the general operations of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, including educational programs, animal care and site maintenance.
A $5,000 grant to the Pittsburgh Symphony will support the Kraft Heinz Audience of the Future program, which provides students with opportunities to explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) concepts through hands-on technologies and maker activities focused on music and the science of sound.
“PPG and the PPG Foundation are pleased to continue our relationships with both of these important Pittsburgh organizations,” said Malesia Dunn, executive director, the PPG Foundation. “Pittsburgh is our hometown, and we remain committed to increasing the educational, cultural and recreational opportunities for our employees, customers and neighbors.”
PPG and the PPG Foundation also committed $7.5 million to the Carnegie Science Center of Pittsburgh earlier this year for the recently opened PPG Science Pavilion
