A top-10 region for families and kids. A haven for sports fans and foodies. A destination for architecture, travel and world-class culture.

         Greater Pittsburgh is all this and more, landing dozens of “best of” nods every year. A region long known for reinventing itself, we’ve earned national renown for innovations in health care, education and technology. But beyond our self-driving cars and top-notch restaurants, we also struggle with stark inequality — in fact, much of what we’re lauded for has yet to help our region’s most vulnerable people. Despite southwestern Pennsylvania’s progress, we still grapple with lasting segregation and disparities in income, education and health. Our region’s renaissance has yet to reach every child in the urban core, every family in the mill towns, every neighbor on the farms and in the mines.

Our communities deserve better.

         Comprising more than 450 civic-minded organizations, the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership invites you to join us October 5 and 6 at the David Lawrence Convention Center for our biennial summit: two days of provocative dialogue and practical professional development designed to bring together the public, private and nonprofit sectors. By convening diverse voices and dynamic people, we’ll work to identify, understand and take steps toward solving the region’s most pressing problems, forging new relationships and innovative partnerships along the way. United by the belief that our region wins when we work together, we’ll search for ways to make our region more livable and equitable for all.

         Organized along three tracks — health equity, economic equity and education equity — this year’s summit asks several important questions: How can we as a region ensure every resident lives a healthy, productive life? How do we bring family-sustaining jobs to our urban, suburban and rural locales? And how do we provide every learner with the knowledge, skills and creativity needed to thrive in a changing world?         

         Join us as we explore these issues and more. Early bird registration closes July 7; regular registration runs through the fall. This year, we’re proud to offer scholarships on a limited basis for nonprofits based in the Hill District and the counties of Westmoreland, Washington, Greene, Fayette and Somerset.
