The Google.org Impact Challenge Pittsburgh rallies the community around bold ideas to make our neighborhoods even better.
A panel of advisors helped us select four nonprofits with innovative ideas for growing economic opportunity in the Pittsburgh area, and each will receive $50,000 in grant funding and Google training. The public has now voted for the cause they believe has the most promise, and the People's Choice winner will receive an additional $50,000.
Learn more about our winners and People's Choice winner below.
