“There is nothing more important than the education of our children. Thus, it was not a challenge for UPMC to consider investing $100 million in The Pittsburgh Promise. It was not something that we considered to be foreign to our mission. Indeed, it was something we considered to be essential to our mission.”
“It is imperative to the future of our region that we work collaboratively to educate students and retain them to support the continued expansion of our diverse economy, which is generating career opportunities for students with post-high school training or a college degree. The Pittsburgh Promise is a great example of how we can work together as a community to capitalize on these opportunities, and Highmark Health is proud to be a supporter of this groundbreaking program as we are very focused on educating the next generation health care workforce.”
“One of the greatest challenges our region will face in the years ahead will be the growing gap between the number of good jobs available here and the availability of workers with the education and skills to fill them. The Pittsburgh Promise is playing a critical role in the effort to find solutions that close that gap as it builds bridges between employers, educators, and students. The Promise helps businesses appreciate the challenges of educators, helps educators understand the demands of the marketplace, and opens a pathway to success for students who imagine a bright future in Pittsburgh.”
“As the global economy becomes more interconnected, workforce and talent demands are fast-changing. At BNY Mellon, we believe that a stronger connection between education and the development of business skills is needed to grow a diverse talent pipeline that will be able to provide creative insights and innovative solutions for our industry and our communities. Supporting The Pittsburgh Promise helps us deliver on our vision of improving lives through investing – in this case, in the BNY Mellon Scholars and in our region.”
We are exceptionally grateful to our supporters and fundraising volunteers for the remarkable investments they have made to support our mission. It is because of them that our students can dream big, work hard, and give back.

“Albert Einstein said, ‘It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.’ Once that passion has been discovered, there should be no barriers, real or imagined, that hold us back. The Pittsburgh Promise is freeing the hearts and minds of our best and brightest students to dream big and be unencumbered in their pursuits. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers, in particular, are in growing demand as Pittsburgh becomes one of the country’s premier high-tech centers. The Pittsburgh Promise is helping to prepare the next generation of our workforce for these rewarding and highly-skilled opportunities. This is not just an investment in our youth; it is an investment in our region’s future.”

“Giant Eagle invests in The Pittsburgh Promise because we know that it’s an investment in the vitality of our region. By providing college scholarships to Pittsburgh’s students, The Promise is strengthening our incoming workforce and our communities.”
“The Pittsburgh Promise is truly only fulfilled by the students who commit to succeed—in high school, in post-secondary education or training, and in life. Today’s Promise Scholars and Promise-ready students are well-positioned for success. If ever there is an opportune time for students to prepare for a career in Pittsburgh, it is now. Together, our collective community is working hard to meet the needs of our growing workforce, to develop the region’s many emerging business opportunities, and to help our communities thrive. All of us at KeyBank share in this mission for student success.”
“We believe The Pittsburgh Promise is the most important thing going on in our community because it has the broadest impact: it encourages families to live in the city, incents kids to stay in school and enables them to get a post-secondary education, and helps prepare skilled workers for our employers.”
“At Mylan, our core purpose has been to provide access to high quality medicine for more than 55 years. We are proud to support The Pittsburgh Promise as a strong partner in the passionate pursuit of access—in particular, through access to education for young people in our region. We believe that the opportunity to build a strong foundation through scholarships to universities has the power not only to change a young person’s life but also to propel our region forward, and we are excited to be part of the growth.”
